Commonly referred to as DS, this surgery is a combination of the sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass. It changes the amount of food you can eat and your ability to absorb calories to help you succeed at long-term weight loss. Weight loss is rapid. This complex operation has higher short-term risks and long-term nutritional risks than the other weight loss surgeries. It is reserved for those people with the most serious obesity.
