Hormone Health Specialist In Chicago
Feel more youthful and like yourself again with our integrative program to optimize your hormone levels
To live a truly full, productive, and joyous life, men need the right amount of testosterone, and women need the perfect balance of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone.
However, as men and women age, hormones decrease, triggering a host of unwanted symptoms. Through advanced, cutting-edge testing and personalized treatment, our providers create a complete, integrative program that optimizes your hormone levels, restoring your energy, your sex drive, your mental focus, and your stamina.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) restores, revitalizes and energizes, improving vitality and libido, alleviating hot flashes, sculpting your body, and building bone. We only use bioidentical hormones, which are identical to your body’s natural chemistry. You’ll experience many positive changes including improved mood and greater energy and sex drive, and deep, restorative sleep.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men
Testosterone is your strength and your power. Testosterone replacement therapy revitalizes and invigorates, improving your sex drive and helping you get strong and lean. We only use the safest and most effective forms of testosterone therapy: testosterone pellets or injections — never gels, creams, or patches. You’ll see dramatic results quickly: clearer thinking, heightened sexual desire and performance, more energy, and a better ability to manage stress. Amplify your edge and live better, stronger, and longer.
Pellets are the only method of hormone replacement therapy that delivers consistent, physiologic levels of testosterone or estrogen, thus avoiding fluctuations in hormone levels — and in mood and energy — that can be caused by other methods of delivery. Lasting from four to six months, pellets are the most effective, safest, and convenient form of hormone replacement.
Benefits of pellets for hormone replacement therapy
Pellet insertion is a safe, effective, and convenient way to augment natural hormone production. You only have to think about it 3–4 times per year!
- Quick and painless: Pellet insertion takes just a few minutes. Using a local anesthetic, we make a small incision in the upper buttock area and insert pellets ½ inch underneath the skin.
- Minimally invasive: The incision made is very small (about 1 cm) and stitches are not typically required. Most patients leave our office with a small bandage that can be removed after a week. The pellets we use are also completely biodegradable, and they dissolve inside the body to leave nothing behind.
- Short recovery period: The recovery period lasts just a few days. Pellets are placed using a sterile technique, so the risk of infection is low.
- Lasting results: You should start feeling effects of their hormone replacement within a couple weeks — and often as soon as in the first few days. Results from even one treatment typically last for 3–6 months.
- Easy and worry-free: Self-injecting hormones can bring pain, inconvenience, and several side effects not seen with pellets. Additionally, pellet hormones can’t contaminate family members or pets — unlike with creams and gels applied to your skin.
