We're proud to now offer BioTE hormone replacement treatment to our patients. In a nutshell, BioTE uses bioidentical hormones that have the same chemical structures as natural hormones you already produce in your body. The tiny pellets are available both as estrogen and testosterone implants and the procedure is performed right in our San Diego office.
While it's natural for our bodies to change as we age, you shouldn't have to accept discomfort as the status quo. Hormone therapy can help.
Our Hormone Replacement Therapy pellets are Bioidentical which make them structurally the exact same as your body’s own hormones.
Regardless of your gender, hormone replacement therapy can help with thyroid, estrogen and testosterone imbalances you may be experiencing.
As a health provider, we are committed to educating our patients to help them make the best decision possible. Here are some of the most frequent questions we hear about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
BioTE is a hormone replacement treatment that uses pellets, tiny cylindrical-shaped supplements that are inserted under your skin. The pellets release precise doses of hormones over time, so your body receives a steady stream of hormones for optimal function. The time-release aspect of BioTE pellets means hormones are delivered and distributed in a manner similar to the way your body distributes the hormones it produces naturally, which means there’s a far lower risk of side effects.
