  1. If a patient has Lynch Syndrome, will a Duodenal Switch allow the needed screenings to be able to continue after surgery? Or does the Duodenal Switch eliminate access to important screening areas? Would a “modified” DS be a possibility to allow for thorough endoscopies later?

    • Duodenal Switch and the so-called “modified” (assuming you are referring to the SIPS/SADI) will all limit endoscopic access to the part s of the the duodenum and small bowel. Not knowing anything about your specific case, I would probably recommend Sleeve as the only option since all other procedures will reset screening endoscopies.
