Updated: May 9, 2023

Although new diabetes drugs have been developed today, only less than half of adults with type 2 diabetes can continue their lives without long-term complications. Metabolic surgery quickly and dramatically controls blood sugar in these patients. Metabolic Surgery is used to describe the surgical procedures used in metabolic diseases, especially in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

The best known metabolic surgery procedure is the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass with over 20 years of experience. Apart from this, sleeve gastrectomy and duodenal switch surgeries are metabolic surgical procedures applied in sugar control. Recently, Ilial Interposition and Duodenojejunal Bypass surgeries have gained importance, especially in patients who do not have an overweight problem but have type 2 diabetes. Especially the high success rates of ileal interposition surgeries in controlling diabetes are worth mentioning.
