Dr. Charles P. Virden created The Virden Method of pellet placement after experiencing discomfort with traditional hormone pellet therapy. Using his background in plastic and reconstructive surgery, he developed a method for more precise placement of pellets. The method involves implanting tiny pellets, about the size of a grain of rice, in the upper glute area using a proprietary tool. This minimizes trauma, bruising, and pain compared to the traditional method. The pellets deliver bioidentical hormones, meaning they closely mimic those produced by the body. This approach provides a steady release of hormones, leading to sustained benefits without the need for frequent administration. Patients report improved well-being and quality of life after receiving hormone pellets using the Virden Method.
It emphasizes the importance of combining internal and external health for overall well-being and enhanced quality of life. TheraPellET offers the Virden Method as the gold standard in pellet therapy.
A hormone imbalance can impact areas of your physical, emotional, sexual, and mental health. Hormone and testosterone pellets offer several advantages, including consistent and long-lasting hormone levels and are an effective relief of symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. These pellets release hormones steadily into the bloodstream, providing sustained benefits for several months and minimizing the need for frequent interventions.
The pellet placement procedure for BHRT (Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy) is relatively quick, simple, and safe. The pellets, which are about the size of a grain of rice, are inserted about an inch under the skin. The procedure is designed to be virtually painless due to the numbing.
People undergo pellet hormone replacement therapy to address various issues including loss of libido, sexual performance difficulties, and mood regulation. This therapy involves bio-identical hormones, which have the same chemical structure as those naturally produced in the body. This method is considered safer and more effective than conventional hormone therapies like creams, pills, or patches, as it avoids fluctuations, liver changes, and increased clotting factors. The pellets typically last 3 to 5 months in women and 4 to 6 months in men.
