What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Our bodies naturally begin to generate less hormones as we age, such as estrogen and testosterone. These kinds of hormones play a crucial role in the operation of several physiological systems, including the heart, brain, bones, reproductive organs, and more. There are several symptoms that people may have when these hormones aren’t balanced. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses compounded hormones that are structurally identical to those your body naturally generates in an effort to ease these symptoms and restore your hormone balance. In this manner, your body utilizes and recognizes these replacement hormones just as it would hormones that it naturally generates.
The BioTE Method of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Over 80 years of scientific research have been distilled into a method that may help with the first indications of aging: the BioTE Method of hormone optimization. For hormone optimization, the BioTE Method employs pellets, which are roughly the size of a rice grain. These small pellets are inserted beneath the skin by your Denver, Lone Tree, or Colorado Springs specialist at The Urology Center of Colorado during a quick, in-office procedure. The pellets will then gradually disintegrate over time; depending on the patient, they may only need to be re-administered every three to five months. Your body will use the hormones that are released into your circulation by the dissolving pellets as needed. The pellets will eventually become entirely be absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
The Importance of Hormone Balance
During menopause, most women undergo a notable decrease in estrogen and testosterone levels. Similarly, many men may encounter a comparable occurrence related to testosterone, commonly referred to as andropause or Low T (low testosterone). Hormonal imbalances occur when there is an excess or deficiency of a hormone in the bloodstream. As vital regulators of major bodily processes, hormones play a crucial role. Even the slightest hormonal imbalance can lead to widespread side effects throughout the body.

Bioidentical hormones, such as the ones used by BioTE, work with the body’s chemistry because they closely replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that normally occur within the body.
BHRT pellets are:
- About the size of a grain of rice
- Inserted subcutaneously
- Absorbed as the body needs them, helping optimize hormone levels
- Dosed precisely for each individual patient’s needs
BioTE Certified Providers receive training on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in the form of subcutaneous pellets. These pellets are inserted into the upper buttocks area during an in-office visit after testing is done to determine the exact quantity of the hormone the patient requires. Every dose is customized based on a consultation and extensive lab work to ensure a patient receives the exact concentration of hormones needed.

Yes, there are two major pellet therapy types: estrogen pellets and testosterone pellets.
Estrogen is a hormone that possesses many functions and occurs in the bodies of both men and women. In women, estrogen is commonly associated with reproduction—it prompts the menstrual cycle and develops the female body’s secondary sex characteristics. However, in both sexes, estrogen is responsible for many facets of bone health, cholesterol metabolism, and the thickness and collagen content of the skin.
Pellets last up to three to six months depending on gender, weight, absorption rates, and the amount of deficiency or surplus of hormones present within the patient at the time of insertion. Pellets are reinserted between two to four times per year to help keep hormones optimized and balanced and may take up to two insertions before feeling the full benefits.
Since pellets are bioidentical and contain hormones like those our body produces, pellets are completely dissolved and absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
Testosterone is a hormone normally found in both men and women that is responsible for many critical body processes. Testosterone is produced in the testes and ovaries, and deficiencies can occur in men and women as the body ages.
Every person’s body is different, but at the end of a pellet cycle or when stopping pellet therapy altogether, symptoms of fatigue, low mood and sleeplessness may recur. Typically, the patient’s symptoms will return to the same state prior to BHRT as their estrogen and testosterone levels begin to drop.
No. Compound Pellet implants are billed directly to the patient and paid for by the patient prior to services being rendered. Cash or Credit Card required. No checks accepted.
