Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch is an effective option for patients with severe morbid obesity and BMI’s in excess of 55. It is also effective for diabetic patients. Key features of this operation include a lengthy bypass of the small intestine as well as decreased stomach volume. The amount of calories absorbed from food is significantly reduced and patients are satisfied with smaller meals.

There are very few bariatric surgeons in the world who regularly perform the Laparoscopic Duodenal Switch procedure. Dr. Rodriguez has extensive experience in this weight loss procedure.
