What is BioTE® hormone pellet therapy?

How do I start?
You will have an initial medical evaluation to discuss all your current symptoms and medical history. Then you will be given a lab slip to have blood work done which will determine your hormone levels. Once the doctor determines that you are a successful candidate, we will schedule an appointment for insertion.
How are they administered?
Your practitioner will then implant the pellets into the fat under the skin of the hip. This requires a small incision in the hip. The pellets are inserted. No stitch is required.
How long will the treatment last?
You will receive two to three pellet insertions per year depending on the person. This way you don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is available when your body needs it. It’s a simple, one-and-done process. If you are really active, under a lot of stress or it is extremely hot your treatment may not last as long.
How does it work?
The pellets dissolve, absorbed and release into your body in a continuous stream of bioidentical hormones. Absorption rate is based on cardiac output.
