Distal Gastric Bypass with Duodenal Switch

USC Surgery / Treatments / Distal Gastric Bypass with Duodenal Switch

This operation entails removal of approximately 75 percent of the stomach to initially decrease the amount of food one can consume. The food that is ingested is then rerouted to the last (distal) half of the small intestine, “bypassing” the final half of the intestine so that food absorption is decreased. Bile is also diverted away from the food that is ingested so that fats are properly absorbed.
