Sleeve DJB

Laparoscopic duodeno-jejunal bypass is a combination of a sleeve gastrectomy where the stomach is converted into a tube like structure using staplers combined with exclusion of proximal small intestine. This leads to a faster passage of food and undigested nutrients into distal small.

It is usually performed for patients suffering from type 2 diabetes. It is a common procedure in countries where the incidence of gastric cancer is higher in the remnant stomach.
