Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an effective treatment using hormones that are identical to the hormones naturally made by your body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is transforming the lives of men and women as they enter different stages of life.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)?

BHRT provides an alternative to synthetic hormones, such as injectable testosterone or hormones concentrated in horse urine (Premarin). Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is made by compounding pharmacists in customized dosages based on the individual needs of the patient as opposed to the narrow choices available with mass-produced, or “one-size-fits-all” hormone therapies.

A more natural hormone therapy How is it different?

A more natural approach to hormone therapy often referred to as “natural hormone therapy” has focused attention on bioidentical hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones that the male and female body naturally produces for itself. Although not found in this form in nature, they are derived and made from plant compounds extracted from yams and soy. The result is often relief from symptoms of hormone deficiency, insomnia, chronic fatigue, memory loss, and loss of libido.

What is pellet therapy?

Roller Weight Loss & Advanced Surgery offers BHRT using Hormone Treatment Centers of America’s (HTCA) Pellet Therapy. Bioidentical Pellet Therapy is a hormone replacement method that replaces the natural hormones men and women lose with age. The pellets contain either estradiol or testosterone, which are pressed or fused into tiny solid cylinders.

When administered, they deliver consistent and healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men. Pellets dissolve inside the body on their own and are re-implanted as needed depending on how rapidly the patient metabolizes the hormones. Pellets avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels seen with other delivery methods, providing more consistent hormone levels over a longer period.
