Hormone Therapy - Anchorage, AK

Hormone therapy is a common treatment for a variety of gynecological conditions and symptoms, especially those experienced during menopause. Hormone therapy uses bioidentical hormone to supplement the body’s existing hormones. This therapy helps to restore and balance hormones for a better quality of life.

If you are approaching or experiencing menopause, or experiencing other hormonal changes, your Denali physician can help you determine if hormone therapy may be an effective addition to your treatment plan. If you experience any of the following symptoms, hormone therapy may be an effective treatment for you:

  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Irregular periods
  • An increase in urinary tract infections
  • Headaches

Transdermal Therapy

Transdermal therapy involves the delivery of medications through the skin via patches or gels to achieve a therapeutic effect in the body.

Pellet Therapy

Pellet therapy involves the implantation of small, hormone-containing pellets under the skin to release consistent levels of hormones over time for therapeutic purposes.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy involves the use of hormones that are chemically identical to those the human body naturally produces, to treat symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances or deficiencies.

How does hormone therapy work?

Hormone pellet therapy is performed by implanting hormones beneath the skin, where the body can easily absorb them. Implanting hormone pellets is a simple and noninvasive procedure, typically taking less than five minutes. This subcutaneous placement of hormones allows patients to receive a steady flow of hormones 24/7. The constant flow of hormones decreases the likelihood of experiencing unwanted side-effects.
