The Anti Aging and Wellness Clinic in Costa Rica is one of the few clinics in the region that concentrates in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy using testosterone pellet implants. Surprisingly, few people know about hormone replacement therapy with the pellet implant. Even more so, most are amazed that pellet delivery for hormone replacement has been around since 1938. Yes, at that time, pellet implantation was one of the preferred methods for hormone replacement therapy.
Around the 1970s, many synthetic hormones came to market which could be delivered orally. Pellets soon lost their popularity due to the convenience of taking a prescription and purchasing some pills. It wasn’t until many years later that increases in cancer risks soon were reported with some of these patented synthetic hormones, which were not bio-identical and are often associated with much of the fear mongering relating to hormone replacement therapies as an anti-aging and age management treatment.
Over the past 6 years pellets have made a significant comeback in popularity. This is particularly the case at the Anti Aging and Wellness Clinic in San Jose Costa Rica. Under the medical leadership of Dr. Leslie Mesen, pellets are given as one of the preferred choices of treatment for testosterone replacement therapy. Dr. Mesen has done thousands of pellet implantations for bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy. He has found that it is often the best approach to providing a consistent time-released level of testosterone to the blood stream for 3-5 months.
