A biliopancreatic diversion is an extreme type of bariatric surgery and it is recommended for very high obesity cases: patients with BMI>50 and with serious obesity associated health problems.
The biliopancreatic diversion procedure acts at two levels, first it reduces the size of the stomach to limit the quantity of food ingested and second it bypasses the upper intestine to limit the amount of food absorbed. The biliopancreatic diversion procedure is very effective, patients will lose 75-80% of their excess weight and generally will stay at their new weight.
The procedure is generally done by laparoscopy and is not reversible. People having a biliopancreatic diversion will need to take vitamins and supplements for the rest of their life.
