The duodenal switch is a malabsorptive bariatric surgical procedure which means you will lose weight way more easy. Making this decision is not easy and we understand it. You may be worried about the possible risks of this surgery. All surgical procedures involve a degree of risk, however, this must be balanced against the significant risks associated with non treated severe obesity. Also, in Mexicali Bariatric Center you are treated by the best bariatric surgeons in Mexico.

Some of the risks may be divided in three:

1. Intra-Operative

-Bleeding, sometimes needing a blood transfusion

2. Post-Operative

-Bleeding, sometimes needing a blood transfusion
-Blood clots

3. Long term

-Excessive weight loss

-kidney stones
