The practice’s recently announced bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BRHT) using Biote pellets offers patients with hormonal imbalances a convenient treatment option. Biote pellets are inserted subcutaneously in the upper buttock area. This is a relatively simple in-office procedure and many patients require as few as two Biote pellet insertions per year to achieve their desired results.

With 47% of U.S. women aged 30-60 reporting hormonal imbalance symptoms, the practice’s newly announced BRHT method includes both testosterone-based and estrogen-based Biote pellets. While women generally experience hormonal imbalances more often, the practice also offers this treatment option for men. BHRT pellets mimic the molecular structure of naturally occurring hormones.
The Biote estrogen pellets are made from estradiol, a form of estrogen, and are most commonly prescribed to alleviate uncomfortable menopause symptoms. The testosterone pellets are composed of powdered testosterone and stearic acid and are most often issued to alleviate low energy and sexual dysfunction related to hormonal imbalance. Both types of Biote pellets are tested for sterility, potency, and endotoxins.
In an initial consultation at Patients Medical, patients discuss their symptoms and medical history with a certified physician and undergo comprehensive testing to determine their unique hormone levels. From here, the Patients Medical physician will determine the appropriate Biote pellet potency and necessary insertion frequency for the patient.
