IMPORTANT NOTE:

Inclusion on this list should not be considered as an endorsement or recommendation by the Duodenal Switch Information Zone nor the Duodenal Switch Yahoo Groups mailing list community.

  • It is essential to learn as much as possible about the experience and credentials of any surgeon with whom you consult.
  • Use the resources found on this website and forums, other internet sites, as well as local meetings, recommendations and referrals, to help you decide which providers to consider.
  • At the time of your consultation, you should make detailed inquiries as to how many and exactly what type of surgical procedures the surgeon has performed.
  • Ask for specific information about morbidity and mortality rates. Any reputable surgeon should be prepared and willing to discuss these matters openly; as potential patients, we should never hesitate to ask for this type of information.

Best wishes!

Surgeons indicated with an asterisk (* ) offer the procedure laparoscopically for appropriate candidates. Consult with the surgeon for more information on whether you might qualify for the lap procedure.
