Duodenal Switch

Choosing the duodenal switch in Mexico is a significant step that marks the beginning of a transformative journey toward better health. Not only does it include the gastric sleeve technique, but it also comes with a reconfiguration of the small intestine. Consequently, this approach delivers dual benefits. Firstly, it lessens the number of calories your body can absorb. Secondly, it promotes a feeling of fullness even after eating smaller meal portions. The outcome? A marked reduction in both calorie intake and absorption. This leads to long-term, successful weight loss.

Duodenal Switch Surgery in Tijuana Mexico

In Mexico, the duodenal switch procedure encompasses both restriction and malabsorption techniques. Initially, about 60 to 70% of the stomach is surgically removed, resembling the process in gastric sleeve surgery.

Additionally, the operation has a second component aimed at changing the body’s process of processing food. Through a rearrangement of the small intestine, the surgeon ensures that the path of the food is separate from the location where digestive enzymes are released. As a result, this design significantly reduces the absorption of calorie-rich fats and sugars.

Preparing for a Duodenal Switch Surgery

On the second day you are in Tijuana, you will have pre-operative tests conducted at the hospital.
Your surgeon will carry out the duodenal switch bariatric surgery, a procedure that typically spans between 120 to 150 minutes. Before the operation, the medical team will administer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the entire surgical process.
Initially, cameras are inserted through a small incision in your abdomen to provide a vivid visualization of the surgical area. Moreover, by utilizing state-of-the-art technology in conjunction with laparoscopic methods, this procedure ensures that patients not only experience a clearer view of the surgery but also benefit from a speedier and more comfortable recovery after the operation.
First, the gastric sleeve surgery is executed, where a significant portion of your stomach is removed. This step decreases the capacity of your stomach, thereby limiting the quantity of food it can accommodate.
Diverting the Small Intestine: What It Means in Duodenal Switch Your surgeon will then attach the end section of your small intestine to the duodenum and close off the middle section of your small intestine.

Understanding the Biliopancreatic Diversion Stage

Following the gastric sleeve surgery, a biliopancreatic diversion is undertaken. During this phase, the central segment of the small intestine is connected to the terminal section. Through this reconfiguration, the digestive fluids, which encompass bile and pancreatic juices, are channeled to this newly restructured portion of the intestines.

The surgeon will then remove their surgical instruments and close the incisions.
Following the procedure, a two-day and two-night hospital stay will be essential. This will allow our devoted team in Tijuana to closely oversee your recovery. Afterward, you’ll be ready to transition to the hotel and continue your recuperation process. As the weeks unfold, not only will you heal and adjust to the new changes, but the tangible results of the surgery will also become increasingly apparent. Ultimately, marked by significant weight loss.
