Weight Loss Operations: Bilopancreatic Diversion

By Dietitian, Juliette Kellow BSc RD

The Bilopancreatic Diversion removes about 75 percent of the stomach and attaches the small pouch that remains to the final part of the small intestine. Bile and pancreatic juices that aid digestion are also diverted to enter the small intestine lower down.

This type of operation works by enabling most of the fat and carbohydrate eaten to pass through the body without being absorbed.

Unfortunately, side effects include loose stools and foul-smelling flatulence. Plus ulcers can develop at the junction of the stomach and small intestine. The surgery can be carried out by keyhole or regular surgery.
