The duodenal switch provides excellent weight loss with preservation of good alimentation, even in the superobese. This is accomplished with acceptable operative mortality and minimal dietary limitations and metabolic sequelae. The results of the duodenal switch that are reported in the literature should remove any inhibitions that exist about the use of this procedure as treatment for patients who have morbid obesity. This article discusses the duodenal switch operation for morbid obesity.
