Dr. Steven Fern, whose office is located at 1447 Medical Park Blvd., Suite 300, in Wellington, is now offering SottoPelle Therapy, a unique form of hormone replacement therapy developed by internationally recognized Dr. Gino Tutera as a solution for patients who struggle with hormone imbalance.
While other forms of hormone replacement therapy are less effective or rely on uncomfortable or inconvenient modalities such as patches, creams, pills or injections, Fern is now certified in offering SottoPelle Therapy, a solution for men and women dealing with hormone imbalance by using all natural bio-identical pellets. Pellets are painlessly placed under the skin and can last anywhere from three to six months.
The use of high quality, uniquely compounded, bio-identical hormone pellets, combined with the proprietary web-based dosing application, BioCalc, and the proper pellet insertion method are fundamental to the safety and effectiveness of SottoPelle Therapy.
When hormones become imbalanced, as they do in peri-menopause and andropause, that’s when the body may begin to show signs of aging. Adult-onset diabetes, coronary artery disease, osteoporosis and a host of other aging-related diseases flourish in a body that is out of balance.
As many as 13 million American men may have low testosterone, resulting in many seeking treatment to help them feel and perform better. Testosterone, widely understood to be the “male” hormone, is important for women also. In their early reproductive years, women have 10 times more testosterone than estrogen in their bodies. Women from as early as their mid-30s show signs of low testosterone levels. Doctors typically prescribe testosterone replacement creams, gels or shots. These provide quick results, but might have dangerous side effects.
“Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in pellet form has been positively researched and accepted as the most effective delivery system available for men and women suffering from the side effects of menopause or andropause, the male equivalent of menopause,” Fern said. “When researching for a reliable method of HRT, I found SottoPelle Therapy was the most effective and safe option for my patients.”
