Testosterone Pellet Treatment may sound a little unconventional but treating Low Testosterone using surgically implanted pellets under the skin is proving to be a consistent form of treatment. It is highly recommended that other forms of Low T therapy are used prior to this treatment to help identify the exact dosage amount needed for your body.
Pellet TRT is a safe and very effective way to treat low T. The procedure takes less than 10 minutes in most cases and is performed by a medical professional. A mild local anesthetic is applied to the incision area at or near the buttocks or upper thigh. The exact location is determined by your provider and is specific to your body. The incision itself is very small and once the time-release pellets are implanted the incision is sutured up. It is very rare that the area gets infected; less than 0.6%. Additionally, in some cases the pellets will be rejected by the body, this happens in less than 6.0% of patients.
If you have tried other forms of testosterone therapy such as creams, injections, or sprays and are having difficulty keeping the schedule or find it troublesome. Pellet treatment is a great way to have consistent treatment for 4 – 6 months at a time. It is highly recommended that you find the exact dosage that your body needs through other forms of treatment prior to switching to Pellet treatment. In most cases, your doctor will not recommend pellets if you have not used other therapies for at least 3 months. It is in your best interest to know the exact amount that your body requires.
Minimal downtown should be expected. Due to the nature of the procedure, you can expect to be in and out of the office in under an hour. The procedure itself takes less than 10 minutes to complete and the pain-numbing injection makes for a comfortable quick experience. Typically we recommend taking a full day off from activity, workouts, work the day of the procedure due to soreness in the incision area.
