Patients who undergo the duodenal switch procedure typically experience the following advantages:
Sustained greater weight-loss than gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy
Ability to eat nearly "normal-sized" portions and meals
Favorable changes in gut hormones that reduce appetite, suppress hunger and improve feelings of fullness
Greater control on type 2 diabetes, compared to gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy
Please note that each surgical case is different; advantages may vary based on the specific patient.
