What is Biliopancreatic Diversion Surgery?
Biliopancreatic diversion, or BPD, is a complicated weight-loss surgery that alters the digestive tract so fats and nutrients are not absorbed into the body. Biliopancreatic diversion (BPD) with switch is a combination restrictive and malabsorptive procedure. The goal of this surgery is to induce weight loss by altering the digestive tract so that nutrients and fats are not absorbed by the body.
Biliopancreatic Diversion Surgery Procedure
There are two Biliopancreatic diversion surgeries: a biliopancreatic diversion and a biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.
- In a Biliopancreatic diversion, a portion of the stomach is removed. The remaining portion of the stomach is connected to the lower portion of the small intestine. See a picture of a biliopancreatic diversion.
- In a Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch, a smaller portion of the stomach is removed, but the remaining stomach remains attached to the duodenum (the upper part of the small intestine). The duodenum is connected to the lower part of the small intestine. See a picture of a biliopancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch.
These procedures can be done by making a large incision in the abdomen (an open procedure) or by making a small incision and using small instruments and a camera to guide the surgery (laparoscopic approach).
What to Expect After Biliopancreatic diversion Surgery?
Most people can return to their normal activities in 3 to 5 weeks. After Biliopancreatic diversion surgery, you generally see your surgeon 3 weeks after surgery and then every 3 months for 1 year. After 1 year, see your surgeon once a year.
Biliopancreatic Bypass Surgery BenefitsWeight Reduction Benefits
Biliopancreatic stomach bypass is a highly effective treatment for clinical or morbid obesity. Patients typically lose 66 percent of their pre-operative excess weight within two years. In one patient study (125 subjects), excess weight loss of 74 percent at one year, 78 percent at two years, 81 percent at three years, 84 percent at four years, and 91 percent at five years was achieved. If biliopancreatic bypass patients adhere strictly to their post-operative dietary and other lifestyle guidelines, they can expect to lose up to 80 percent of their excess weight and maintain this weight reduction, without weight regain, indefinitely. This weight loss alone can produce significant health benefits, like lower blood cholesterol, lower blood pressure, reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.
Health Benefits of Biliopancreatic Diversion Surgery
According to a recent study of 500 bariatric bypass patients, 96 percent of weight-related health conditions (eg. hypertension, back pain, sleep apnea, diabetes and depression) were improved or resolved after undergoing biliopancreatic diversion gastric bypass.
Benefits Conditional Upon Patient Compliance
Despite the logic behind biliopancreatic gastric bypass surgery, it is no easy answer to morbid obesity. The same pressures to over-eat and take insufficient exercise that existed before the stomach bypass operation will exist in the post-operative period. Biliopancreatic diversion offers patients an opportunity to change, rather than a quick solution to their weight status.
