Biliopancreatic Diversion

The basics of Biliopancreatic Diversion.

Bariatric Biliopancreatic DiversionBiliopancreatic diversion (or BPD) requires removal of half of your stomach and bypass of more than 50 percent of your small intestine.

Advantages of Biliopancreatic Diversion

BPD is one of our most powerful bariatric surgery procedures for sustained weight loss and control of metabolic disorders such as diabetes and high cholesterol.

Risks of Biliopancreatic Diversion

The side effects are pronounced and include smelly bowel movements, gas and a high degree of diarrhea. The malabsorptive nature of this operation makes vitamin, mineral and protein replacement critical for long-term health.
