Dr. Hausman-Cohen will take the time to evaluate your hormone needs by evaluating your blood work and also your symptoms. There are a wide variety of hormone delivery systems including pill, cream, and pellet forms. With guidance from Dr. Hausman-Cohen you will be given the opportunity to discern which method is best for you.
We do provide hormone pellet therapy in conjunction with BioTE® at both our Resilient Health and Balcones Woods Family Medicine locations. You do not need to be a Resilient Health Member to obtain BioTE® services but you will be required to have an office visit to determine whether or not hormone pellet therapy is appropriate for you.
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 that provide 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 three to five months without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, pellet therapy is ideal for patients who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
