Biliopancreatic Diversion in Lagos
Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPD) reduces the size of the stomach (similar to gastric bypass surgery), but it also reduces the amount of food that is absorbed within the intestine (malabsorption).
Parts of the stomach are removed during a BPD operation. The thin pouch that remains is attached directly to the small intestine’s final portion, entirely bypassing the upper intestines. Prior to entering the colon, bile and pancreatic digestive juices combine in a typical tube. The majority of calories and nutrients are routed into the intestine, where they are not consumed, resulting in weight loss.
