What is Testosterone Pellet Therapy?


Dr. Robert Madda N.D. and Dr. Cara Phillipo N.D. have a strong passion for helping their patients feel like the very best versions of themselves!  One of the beat ways that we have found to increase vitality as people age is by balancing hormone leves in patients who have a physiological need for this treatment.  After years of prescribing hormones in the forms of injections, creams, patches and oral preparations the doctors at The Natural Path learned about the testosterone pellet and how it could be used as a bio-identical hormone therapy. Dr. Rebecca Glaser and Dr. Mark Richards were very important in their learning. These two teachers are an endless resource of the amazing impact low doses of testosterone can have as the female body begins to approach the menopausal years.

The Little Pellet of Testosterone can Really be a Game Changer for Women as they Age

The testosterone pellet is a small rice or “tic tac” sized capsule that is compounded at a reputable compounding pharmacy and placed (through a very minor surgical procedure) in the upper buttocks.  The wonderful thing about this therapy is that it can be used for both men and women and the results we have had in our clinical practice are really amazing.  Other than the occasional breakout (rare) and the occasional patient who gets a hair or two that grows on the chin we have only seen notable positive changes. We have over a decade of experience with this and see multiple patients each day for this procedure!


Who is a Candidiate for the Testosterone Pellet Therapy in Portland, Oregon


At the time of the first visit, we require our patients to have blood work done.  After careful review of the blood work, past medical history and current symptoms we can decide who is a candidate for this therapy.  Most often, we treat men and women going through or in andropause/menopause.  The most common symptoms of this diagnosis is hot flashes, night sweats, memory fog, lack of energy, low libido, insomnia and weight gain.


Why is the Testosterone Pellet Beneficial

The testosterone pellet really shines in the sense that it delivers a steady, consistent dose of hormone over time.  Often, with creams and injections we have a roller coaster effect of hormone secretion that can result in ups and downs with mood and energy.  With the testosterone pellet, there is no need to remember to do anything on a daily basis.  The pellet lasts for 3-4 months and can be reinserted by your physician as long as follow up blood work has been completed.  The Testosterone pellet  is also very pure as it is compounded using bio-identical hormones and does not use fillers or binders as do many creme and injectable preparations.  The dosage of the hormone pellet is uniquely tailored to each patient and their physiology.


The Testosterone Pellet has been in use as a hormone therapy since 1935 and therefore has almost 80 years of clinical experience behind it.
