Pellet hormone therapy is an in-office procedure that allows your body to receive the balanced hormones itneeds directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Pellet hormones are extracted fromplants to replicate the body's natural hormones. The grain-sized pellets are placed painlessly under the skin inthe hip area to provide a low dose of hormones consistently. The pellets slowly dissolve over time and can last several months.

Otherforms of hormone replacement therapies use high amounts of synthetic hormones at one time, usually causingan imbalance of hormones in the body. Our providers are able to prescribe the perfect dose and combination ofhormones for each patient using pellet hormone therapy.
