What is BioTE Medical?

  • BioTE Medical, a leader in precision and preventive medicine has translated over 80 years of scientific insight into clinically validated medical protocols that identify and treat the earliest indicators of aging.
  • We work with each of our patients on an ongoing basis to analyze symptoms and lab results using a specially designed dosing algorithm to develop a unique treatment plan.


  • The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses custom-compounded pellets (approximately the size of a grain of rice) that contain doses of testosterone and estrogen
  • These hormones are bioidentical to those already present in the body and work to restore hormones to optimal levels.
  • The pellets are placed subcutaneously in the lower hip and release a continuous stream of hormones as the body needs them.
  • Once inserted, the pellets dissolve slowly, so that they only need to be re-administered every 4-6 months depending on the patient.


  • For men and women, the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone perform several important processes. Both men and women begin to produce less of these hormones as they age, which can start as early as someone’s mid-20s or early 30s.
  • Most women see a significant drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause, while many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, known as andropause.
  • Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream.
  • Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.

No fasting is required in advance of the insertion.
During the in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, patients are brought into the exam room, and the insertion site is numbed. The most common site of insertion is the upper buttocks. A small incision is then made for pellet insertion. Once the pellet is inserted, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage.
After pellet insertion, it’s best to eliminate lower body exercise. Walking should be fine, but extraneous activity is not recommended. Swimming, hot tubs, and bathtubs are to be avoided; however, showers are permitted. After removal of the bandage, normal activity may resume.
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Each pellet therapy is customized to fit a patient’s specific needs.
Since pellets are bioidentical and contain hormones like those produced by the body, they are completely dissolved and absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
