Practice Approach

As you may or may not know, SottoPelle Therapy was created by Gino Tutera MD, FACOG (a board certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist) in 2002, but first discovered this method in 1992 and through his own clinical trials and academic research refined the science behind hormone replacement therapy to create SottoPelle Therapy. During the beginning years of utilizing pellet therapy, he was furthering his knowledge and understanding of how they work. Most importantly he was working on how to individualize the dose for every person. At that time, there were very few in the United States who knew about pellets and how to use them. The initial way to treat patients was to give everyone the same dose regardless of age, size, weight and issues. SottoPelle Therapy is an all-natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy that specializes in the use of subcutaneous testosterone and estradiol pellets. This method was first used in 1937 in England and Australia. Our mission statement is Safe and Effective. The use of biologically identical, non-synthetic, testosterone and estradiol is safe, and the use of pellets as the delivery method provides is effective. The delivery method of pellets allows for the continual release of the hormone – the key to improving brain and muscle function. Other delivery methods result in sporadic, or a “roller coaster,” effect in the delivery and release of hormones within the body. These methods include pills, patches, injectables, and creams. Literature shows that the use of pellets and all natural testosterone carries less risk compared to synthetic testosterone. SottoPelle Therapy uses a science based approach to prescribing (dosing) the patient the appropriate amount of testosterone and/or estradiol based on specific factors about the individual and their blood analysis. The typical male has two insertions per year and the typical female has three or four. The pellets are compounded in a compounding pharmacy subject to strict regulations and are prescribed to the patient. This is not sold over the counter.
