Duodenal Switch Healthcare Providers

DSFacts maintains a list of Duodenal Switch (DS) surgeons and health care providers that is updated on a regular basis. The surgeon’s or their office representative provides the information published on this site. If a patient wishes to have their surgeon listed then that surgeon should contact www.dsfacts.com directly.

Addition to the list is subjective, advisory, and is not intended to be an endorsement of any surgeon’s qualifications; the lack of inclusion is not intended to be a disparagement of any surgeon’s qualifications. The list is intended to provide contact information for DS surgeons and is based in part on feedback reports from other DS patients posted on other sites and boards. We cannot answer specific questions regarding any surgeon beyond the information posted. Patients seeking additional information should seek other venues including various interactive message boards on other websites, which is where questions can be asked directly for feedback from patients of those surgeons.

The list on this site does not include information that a prospective patient needs to find out for themselves, and verify by contacting the surgeon’s office. Also, by researching information that can be found on the many interactive message boards where DS patients post, and by contacting patients of the surgeon they are researching. This list may not reflect all of the information that patients would find to be important in selecting a surgeon, including but not limited to:

Issues with communications with the surgeon or with the surgeon’s office.
Issues with proper handling of insurance paperwork.
Issues with availability of the surgeon.
Issues with the quality of nutritional advice provided by the surgeon or support staff.
Issues with surgeons who try to discourage patients from seeking DS.
Issues with surgeons who often recommend two-stage surgeries instead of one.
The specifics surrounding issues with malpractice claims and/or licensure issues.
Issues with complication rates not justified by patient population.

Needless to say, patients need to use this list as a guide and do their own research.

Furthermore, DSFacts does not represent every DS surgeon listed. If a qualified DS surgeon is missing or the contact information has changed for that surgeon, please have the surgeon’s office contact us.

Note that there are surgeons who claim they perform the DS procedure, but once you get into their office they attempt to talk you out of it and into one of the procedures they actually perform. These may be surgeons advocating the Single Anastomosis DuodenoIleal (SADI) procedure as “the same as a DS” or recommending having the sleeve done first, then the DS as a second stage for a later date. It is advised that all future patients make sure the surgeon has substantial experience with the DS procedure and can provide accurate information.

If a patient requires revision surgery, it is critical that they research to make sure they are using an experienced and skilled revision DS surgeon. There may be surgeons who recommend revision to patients who have the distal gastric bypass done for failed RNY gastric bypass.

This list is not inclusive, and the reader is encouraged to be cautious about the source of information they receive on these sites, but getting the benefit of other patients’ experience with a surgical practice can be very important in choosing and using a surgeon.
