Hormone levels in the body decrease with age and lead to malaise, insomnia, osteoporosis and other conditions. Residents interested in Hormone Replacement Therapy in Atascocita, TX can visit Dr. Matthew St. Laurent, a board-certified general surgeon at Northwest EndoSurgical to find out more about safe and efficient hormone treatments.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As men and women age, hormone production in the body becomes affected. Numerous symptoms result from a decreased level of hormones, specifically progesterone and estrogen, causing the body to lose its vigor. Specialized treatments to restore hormonal balance to the body are part of the process commonly known as hormone replacement therapy.
What are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Rather than merely treating symptoms, hormone replacement therapy treats the underlying cause of the symptoms for genuine recovery. When treatments begin, patients usually notice improvements in strength, libido, body composition and mood.
How is Hormone Replacement Therapy Performed?
Hormone Replacement Therapy uses standard procedures that, when performed by Dr. St. Laurent and our staff, safely provide symptom relief. In most cases, hormones, in the form of small pellets, are inserted under the skin through a small incision. The doctor injects hormones under the skin of the buttocks, but the procedure can work in other areas, as well. Patients are given local anesthesia, so the process is almost painless. Over the course of three to six months, the pellets dissolve into the body, restoring hormone levels. Sometimes multiple treatments are needed.
