Featured Image

As a hormone replacement therapy treatment (HRT), BioTE® is personalized for each patient. At Kotsanis Institute of Functional Medicine, Dr. Constantine Kotsanis carefully implants these customized BioTE pellets beneath the skin to slowly release chemically identical hormones into the bloodstream.

Each pellet contains doses of estrogen or testosterone, depending on what is needed for the patient. These hormones are specifically designed to replicate the hormones your body naturally produces, also known as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT. To learn if you’re a candidate for BioTE in Grapevine, TX, call Kotsanis Institute to schedule a consultation.

Is BioTE right for me?

As we get older, our hormone levels change and drop, leading to many different unpleasant side effects. When women go through menopause, they will notice a drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause. Men go through something similar with their testosterone levels. Here are some common symptoms and side effects that we help treat our patients for at Kotsanis Institute with BioTE hormone replacement therapy:

Symptoms in women:

  • Irregular menstrual periods

  • Migraines

  • Dryness or other changes in the skin

  • Decreased estrogen levels

  • Hot flashes

  • Pain during sex

  • Low libido

Symptoms in men:

  • Decreased sex drive

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Fatigue

  • Trouble sleeping

  • Loss of muscle or bone mass

  • Weight gain

  • Moodiness

  • Elevated sugar and/or cholesterol levels

BioTE hormone pellets can successfully treat these symptoms in men and women in Grapevine, TX.

How we administer BioTE hormone pellets

After your consultation with Dr. Kotsanis, we will schedule you to come in throughout the year to have BioTE insertion treatments. Treatment only lasts a short time, and a local anesthetic is applied to the upper part of your buttocks before a small incision is made. These BioTE hormone pellets are only the size of a grain of rice and are carefully injected underneath the skin. To close the small incision, we use a surgical adhesive. Within a few months, the pellet will begin to emit your personally designed dosage of hormones. This allows your body to better regulate its hormone levels.

Over time, your BioTE pellets will slowly dissolve. Follow-up procedures are necessary every 4 – 6 months to maintain your results. Dr. Kotsanis can work with you to create an appropriate treatment plan specific to your needs and health goals.
