About Bioidentical Hormone Therapy with Pellets

As we age our body’s production of estrogen and testosterone decreases. These hormones are vital not only to our sexual health, but also impact our bone density, cardiovascular health, mood, cancer risk and more. When hormones are out of balance, we can feel sick, and we can actually get sick.

If you see a general practitioner about hormone replacement, you may be prescribed a pill, patch or cream made with synthetic hormones. These predetermined doses might not be the right fit for you, and the delivery methods can lead to peaks and valleys in your hormone levels that leave you feeling like you are on an emotional roller coaster.

Bioidentical pellet therapy treats the symptoms of hormone deficiency for both men and women more gently, more naturally.

Pellet therapy for hormone replacement has been around for over 70 years and is the safest, most effective form of hormone replacement therapy available. The pellets are compounded in custom dosages to meet each patient’s needs, and the tiny implants (about the size of a grain of rice) are inserted under the skin. Unlike synthetic hormones, pellet therapy uses bioidentical hormones, meaning they are molecularly identical to the hormones produced by the human body. The pellet delivery system allows for a consistent, gradual release of a physiologic dose of hormone, with no roller coaster effect. It’s what your body needs, in the right amount, exactly when you need it.

Bioidentical Pellet Therapy was developed in Europe in the 1930s, where doctors found tremendous success in treating hormone deficiencies, especially in menopause. Dr. Robert B. Greenblatt brought the practice to the U.S. in 1939 and it has been used ever since.

Our founder, Dr. Gino Tutera, has been internationally recognized as the foremost pioneer in the field of bioidentical hormone replacement and is largely responsible for its popularity today. Dr. Tutera was a board-certified OB/GYN specializing in menopause, PMS and other hormone-based issues. He began using bioidentical hormone therapy in 1979 to prevent pregnancy loss, but was convinced the therapy had wider applications for the treatment of hormonal deficiencies. He was right. In 1992, Dr. Tutera started SottoPelle Therapy on the premise that hormonal balance could make a significant impact in people’s lives. He developed the safe, scientifically-proven and proprietary pellet delivery system that we use today.

Dr. Tutera was a visionary, and thanks to him and his happy patients who have spread the word through television, internet, books and other forms of media, more and more people are having their lives changed for the better with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Tutera calls it “healing from the inside out.”
