Hormone optimization

As we age, hormone levels will decline. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the replacement of hormones in menopausal women and andropausal men. Hormone pellets are surgically implanted into the patient for HRT. The pellets are tiny cylinders that are inserted into a numbed area of subcutaneous fat, typically in the hip or the abdomen. This dosage form is very physiologic in that it closely mimics how our body releases hormones. These pellets can last 3 to 6 months, depending on the patient. Pellets can be made using estradiol or testosterone. Dosing is determined by your Provider based on lab results, medical history, and reported symptoms.
