Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHT) refers to treatment with hormone medications that contain hormones that have the same chemical formula as those made naturally in the body, referred to by many as “bioidentical” hormones. BHT is an essential medical therapy for millions of people. BHT may be used to treat the symptoms of hormone imbalance which include fatigue, weight gain, low sex drive, hot flashes, poor sleep and many more. Imbalances are common before, during and after menopause but can occur in women at any age.
There are many options for bioidentical hormone therapy depending upon your symptoms, medical history and personal treatment goals. We offer in depth hormonal evaluation to determine if BHT is right for you. We also work with only high quality, safe and reliable compounding pharmacies to assure the best possible treatment options and response.
BHT pellet therapy is an effective, popular and convenient treatment option. Our clinic has found great results with BioTE®. We have been certified BioTE® providers since 2016 and our patients come from around the Midwest for our experienced team.

Our clinic has found great results with BioTE® Medical – a hormone replacement pellet therapy for women.

Who is hormone therapy for? If you are suffering from menopause, hot flashes, night sweats, dryness, extreme fatigue, decreased mental focus or memory, irritability, anxiety or depression, difficulty sleeping or reduced sexual desire, BioTE® Hormone Replacement Therapy at Northpointe may be for you.
What is BioTE®? A bio-identical hormone replacement uses small pellets that have been created to replicate the molecular structure of your body’s natural hormones. Sourced from plants, these natural pellets release hormones into your system just as your body was designed to. This minimizes the side effects commonly seen with synthetic hormone therapy.
What does the process look like? Our providers will first have you visit the clinic for an initial assessment and bloodwork to test your current hormone levels. Based on this information and our initial consultation, we will determine if you are a candidate for BioTE® hormone therapy.
If you are a candidate, your follow up appointment will be scheduled for the insertion of your custom created BioTE® pellet. This visit only takes a few minutes where the insertion site is numbed, a small incision is made, and the pellet is inserted and then covered with a small bandage. Because the pellet is as small as a grain of rice, there are no stitches needed for the incision and the process is painless.
Pellets will release a consistent level of hormones over a 3 to 6 month period and will not have to be replaced prior. We will schedule follow up blood work to test your levels after the insertion – typically 4 to 6 weeks post pellet insertion.
