Hormone Replacement Therapy (BioTE) Procedure

(Before, During and After)

Before:

Before starting BioTE HRT, a thorough consultation with Dr. Adeeb AlShahrour is essential. This will involve discussing your medical history, symptoms, and treatment goals. Hormone levels may be assessed through blood tests to determine the appropriate hormone replacement plan. Dr. AlShahrour will guide you through the process, addressing any concerns or questions you may have.

During:

BioTE HRT involves the insertion of hormone pellets beneath the skin. This is typically performed during an outpatient visit at the Women’s Health Center of Chicago. Local anesthesia is administered to minimize discomfort. Dr. AlShahrour will make a small incision, usually in the hip area, and insert the pellets. The incision is then closed with sutures or adhesive strips. The procedure itself is relatively quick and straightforward.

After:

Following the BioTE HRT procedure, you may experience mild discomfort, bruising, or swelling at the insertion site. These symptoms are typically temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Dr. AlShahrour will provide specific post-procedure instructions, including wound care and activity restrictions. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor hormone levels and adjust the treatment plan if needed.
