Welcome and thank you for visiting.
Our all natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy program (BHRT) is designed and managed by Dr. Laurette Smith for clients seeking a quick and affordable entry to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in Cedar Park TX.
Why Bio-identical Pellet Therapy?
Because it’s easy! As a patient, you receive two to four pellet insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is available when your body needs it.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of hormone 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 replacement therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the BioTe hormones used are completely natural, pellet hormone therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
How does pellet hormone therapy work?
Your age management package will include a thorough consultation with Dr. Laurette Smith, who is also our owner and medical director.
Dr. Smith will review your medical history, current symptoms and detailed lab work.
If you qualify for hormone therapy, an appointment for the exact pellet insertion will be done by Dr. Smith.
Pellet insertion is a relatively simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia. It takes an average of 15-30 minutes in total.
The pellets are inserted subcutaneously (under the fatty lining of skin) in the upper buttocks through a very small incision.
The incision is then closed with sterile tape strips. Dr. Smith perfoms all the insertions.
Women typically experience more physical changes than men do.
If you’ve been diagnosed with perimenopause, menopause or low testosterone, then you’ve probably tried everything to experience relief.
Menopause can include:
- Anxiety and mood swings
- Inability to sleep
- Weight fluctuations
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Thinning hair
- Vaginal dryness
- Painful intercourse
- Headaches and migraines
When is Hormone Replacement Therapy Most Beneficial?
Hormone replacement therapy can help anyone whose hormones are out of balance. However, the most common time women seek out hormone replacement therapy is when they’re experiencing menopause.
The good news is that you have options when it comes to mitigating the effects of hormone changes.
A simple blood test will show if you qualify for BHRT.
