Many patients have tried and failed different methods of hormone replacement but have attained success with bio-identical pellet implants. Pellets are really the most convenient form of hormone replacement. Pellet therapy has been around since the late 1930’s and has proven time and again to be safe and effective.
Pellet therapy is customized to you: the dosing is based on your age, weight, activity level, and blood levels. The pellet (or pellets) are inserted based on a well established dosing method. The pellets slowly release the hormones into your blood over time and dissolve with time. It closely resembles the natural way that hormones are secreted into your blood stream from organs–it is as close to nature as we can get at this point.
