Frequently Asked Questions
How is pellet therapy different?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has changed the lives of countless people, helping them to feel like themselves again. What sets pellet therapy apart is the way is takes the “roller coaster” effect out of hormone replacement. When it is left up to normal humans (like all of us) to remember to take a pill at a certain time each day, apply a cream, or replace a hormone patch, mistakes are bound to happen. There are going to be times when there is a surge of hormones coursing through the body and times when there is barely enough to make a difference.
Our pellets are placed under your skin so that they can consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones. It is steady and dependable. BioTE Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of BHRT that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4-6 months. Because BioTE is completely natural, it is ideal for patients who need help, but want to avoid the drawbacks associated with synthetic hormones.
What are in the pellets?
Our pellets contain a natural plant source of both estrogen and testosterone. Smaller than a grain of rice, they are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and closely mimic the actions of healthy, vital ovaries and testicles.
Where is the procedure performed?
Hormone pellet implantation is easily performed in our office.

What if my primary care physician is not on board?
There is a very good chance that your primary care physician is not an expert in BHRT. In fact, it would be unusual if he were. While there are hundreds of studies available supporting the safety and efficacy of BHRT delivered by pellet implants, most busy practitioners either do not know where to find them or simply do not have the time to fully research the matter.
