Capital of Texas Ob/Gyn physicians Dr. Mushtaler and Dr. Browne are proud to be certified BioTE® Medical providers of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). We are committed to educating our patients about the benefits of BHRT and how hormone therapy, using the BioTE® method, is the ultimate foundation for good health. We use tiny subcutaneous cardio-activated bioidentical pellets inserted just below the surface of the skin. This BioTE method mimics how hormones are naturally released into the body. This allows a patient’s hormones to remain at optimized levels more consistently than synthetic options.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy — which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient — BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, pellet therapy is ideal for patients who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
What are Hormone Pellets?
Pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone used in the pellets.
These pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regard to hormone release into the bloodstream. The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.
Optimized hormones significantly reduce the risk of serious health problems, such as:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Heart Disease
