Mexicali Bariatric Center welcomes Mexico's leading Duodenal Switch Surgeon
September 02, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsSeptember 2, 2014 - Mexicali Bariatric Center, Mexico's top institution for weight loss surgery, welcomed the recent arrival of Dr. Gilberto Ungson. Dr. Ungson is one of the leading bariatric surgeons in the country and a leading authority in the duodenal swich, one of the most effective -yet difficult- bariatric procedures there is.
The duodenal switch (DS) was developed in the 1980s and though it is not a very common technique, the results obtained by this type of surgery for obesity are among the most successful compared with long-term results shown by other laparoscopic procedures. Duodenal switch in Mexico is both safe and affordable thanks to the practice of surgeons like Dr. Ungson.
Duodenal Switch surgery has as main objective the reduction of the stomach and the limited absorption of calories; more specifically, with this method 70% of the stomach is removed and the intestinal tract is altered, thereby altering the digestion and absorption of food. For weight loss surgery in Mexico, the duodenal switch is one of the most recommended procedures, although only a very few can perform this technique safely and effectively.
During the Duodenal Switch half of the stomach is removed (it is cut and removed) vertically rather than horizontally and thus the junction between the stomach and intestine remains more as it used to be.
Given this, the duodenal switch procedure usually supplies all patient expectations leading to their total satisfaction long term.
At Mexicali Bariatric Center we are proud to announce Dr. Gilberto Ungson as our new surgeon in chief, the Mexico's leading expert for this technique.
As with any surgical procedure, there are pros and cons.
Given the particular nature of this procedure, not all patients are candidates for access duodenal switch surgery.
