it's actually spelled "distal". I believe it bypasses more of the small intestine than the standard bypass does, giving you more malabsorption.

When you have a distal bypass more of the intestine is bypassed than a Proximal Gastric Bypass. If more of the intestine is bypassed then more weight is lost through the process of malabsorption. So it's kind of in-between a proximal bypass and duodenal switch.
