As a personalized hormone replacement therapy treatment (HRT), BioTE is designed specifically for each individual patient. The customized BioTE pellets are carefully implanted underneath the skin in order to slowly release chemically identical hormones into the bloodstream. Each pellet contains doses of estrogen and/or testosterone that are ideal for the specific patient. These hormones are specifically designed in order to replicate the hormones that the body naturally produces, also known as bioIdentical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT. BioTE hormone replacement can be helpful for both men and women who experience several issues, including:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Weight gain
- Low sex drive
- Low energy
- Stress and anxiety
- Extreme fatigue
- Difficulty sleeping
- High cholesterol
At Kotsanis Institute of Functional Medicine, board-certified otolaryngologist Dr. Constantine Kotsanis is a certified provider of BioTE hormone replacement therapy. Our Grapevine, TX male and female patients have experienced exceptional improvements with the use of hormone replacement therapy with BioTE, and it is all achieved without the hassle and inconvenience of daily medication.

"Dr Kotsanis and his staff are beyond amazing! Thank you for taking care of me with my illness and getting me through Covid. Because of the proactive treatment I was able to avoid hospitalization.

"Dr. Kotsanis and his staff are loving, caring, and work with you toward better health. I was miserable with Lyme and other conditions just starting to decline to the point of sleeping most the day, Plantar’s fasciitis so painful it hurt to walk, brain fog, cognitive issues, horrible Lyme anxiety, etc etc I had no desire to take weeks of antibiotics that other doctors recommended especially since I’d been diagnosed with chronic Lyme that doesn’t respond well to just antibiotics and I already had damage from 4 years of antibiotics when I was young. My husband took me to Dr. Kotsanis (mind you we live in Houston). I didn’t even want to hope again and be disappointed. But within weeks of treatment, I began to improve. After 6 months, I feel like a different person. The culture of the clinic and everyone who works there are amazing! I love the people and their passion to best serve their patients and make vulnerable sick people feel cared for! I only go back now and again for a treatment but I love seeing the caring knowledgeable staff. I truly wish they’d train other medical practices how to create such a caring knowledgeable culture."- S.M. / Facebook / Jan 08, 2021
"Dr. Kotsanis treated my diabetic husband with meds and nebulizers after a diagnosis of Covid-19. When Doc then diagnosed double pneumonia in Jim, his staff located one of the two x-ray facilities within 30 miles that would take a Covid-positive patient. After reading the results, Doc referred Jim to Baylor Dallas, the only hospital that could treat patients with remdesivir. Although gravely ill, Jim went home 16 days later."- M.W. / Facebook / Jan 06, 2021
"Excellent staff and medical care for various conditions! Dr is very caring and friendly! His staff is absolutely amazing ! I highly recommend this clinic!!!"- G.M. / Google / Jan 02, 2021
Is BioTe Right for me?
In both men and women, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone contribute to a number of crucial processes within the body. As we get older, hormone levels can begin to change and drop, leading to a number of unpleasant side effects. In particular, when women go through menopause, they notice a drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause; additionally, many men can go through a similar event that relates to testosterone. The below symptoms and side effects are just a few of the issues that Kotsanis Institute of Functional Medicine patients notice before BioTE treatment.
Symptoms in men:
- Decreased sex drive
- Fatigue and trouble sleeping
- Loss of muscle and bone mass
- Weight gain
- Moodiness and irritability
- High blood sugar and cholesterol
Symptoms in women:
- Irregular menstrual periods
- Dryness and changes in the skin
- Decreased estrogen levels
- Hot flashes
- Pain during intercourse
Following a consultation with Dr. Kotsanis, we will schedule you to come in periodically during the year to have your BioTE insertion treatments. The treatment only lasts a short time, and a local anesthetic is applied to the upper part of your buttocks prior to a small incision being made. The BioTE hormone pellets are only the size of a grain of rice, and they are carefully injected underneath the skin. To close the small incision, a surgical adhesive is utilized. Within a few months, the pellet emits your personally designed dosage of hormones to allow your body to better regulate its hormone levels.
The BioTE pellets not only help to stabilize your hormones, but they can also:
- Increase libido
- Aid in intestinal absorption
- Provide functional support to your brain, liver, and heart
- Help with weight loss
- Enhance your sleeping patterns
What to Expect with BioTe
Over time, the BioTE pellets begin to dissolve slowly. Therefore, follow-up procedures will need to be scheduled every 4 – 6 months in order to maintain your overall results. Dr. Kotsanis can work with you to curate an appropriate treatment plan specifically for your needs and health goals.
