BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy
Dr. Jill Gibson is proud to offer bio-identical hormone therapy using bioTe pellet therapy. The bioTe system allows physicians to specifically tailor the dosages of hormones to each woman’s specific needs. Pellet therapy adds to the options we already to offer to aid in aging gracefully.
The term “bio-identical” means that the biochemical structure of the hormone is perfectly matched to the hormone produced in a woman’s body by her endocrine system. Bio-identical hormones are plant-based, natural substances. These compounded bio-identicals can be matched to each woman’s unique needs, something that’s impossible with mass-manufactured products.
Dr. Jill Gibson and Dr. Jessica Rinaldo have undergone advanced training in hormone therapy in order to provide patients with the latest options. We are prepared to help you navigate the ever changing landscape of hormone therapy and assist you in finding the best treatment for you.
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 providing 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 four to six months, without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
What are Hormone Pellets?
BioTE® pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone utilized 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 regards to hormone release into the bloodstream. The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.

In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings and many others.
