The Biliopancreatic Diversion to the Sleeve Gastrectomy
A Biliopancreatic diversion is an operative method to reduce weight. The Biliopancreatic diversion in Turkey is often performed with a duodenal switch. The operation is a good option for patients with a high level of overweight and a BMI of over 50, if other methods for a weight reduction didn’t work out. The high expertise and longstanding experience of our specialists and surgeons in Turkey will return the sense of life and health to you.
Biliopancreatic Diversion in Turkey
In the first step of the operation about 80 percent of the stomach will be removed. The remaining small part in the form of a sleeve looks like a banana. In the Biliopancreatic diversion the part where the food merges into the small intestine is kept, also a limited part of the small intestine.
In the second step of the operation the surgeon connects the end portion with the duodenum close to the stomach. With this procedure the intake of food and nutrients, including proteins and fats, is definitely reduced.
With a Biliopancreatic diversion in Turkey normally only one operation is needed. In some cases there will be two operations. After the first part the weight loss will be controlled, before the bypass will be performed.
The Advantages of a Biliopancreatic Diversion
A Biliopancreatic diversion is performed to help you to lose overweight. Additionally the risk of life-threatening ailments is reduced. These include:
- heart disease,
- hypertensio, high cholesterol level,
- severe sleep apnea,
- type 2 diabetes,
Maybe in your country surgeons will perform this kind of operation only, when changes in your diet and exercise behaviours have failed to reduce weight. Likewise an operation there will be more costly as in Turkey. Often health care will not refund a Biliopancreatic diversion.
