Is age medicine right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for age medicine at Advanced Surgeons, bariatric specialists discuss your symptoms and medical history and complete a physical examination. They recommend you undergo blood tests to assess hormone levels, as well as your nutritional status. 

What should I expect during my treatment?

Advanced Surgeons specialists personalize hormone therapy treatments to match your needs and lifestyle. Hormone treatments are available as injections, BioTE® pellet implants, skin patches, topical gels, vaginal applications in women, pills, and more.

During bioidentical hormone pellet treatment, your provider inserts a tiny pellet just beneath your skin and closes the incision. The pellet slowly releases hormones into your body over time to keep your levels within a normal, healthy range. 

Your specialist can replace the pellets every few months or as needed to give you long-lasting anti-aging results.

Your provider might combine pellet therapy with the BioTE-backed nutraceutical line CORE+, developed to support bioidentical hormone therapy and maximize hormone health.
