Dr. Bandeira’s approach to healthcare comprises the physical, mental, social, and emotional needs of aging adults from their mid-life well into their golden years; a critical component to optimal functionality in those areas is addressing the naturally occurring hormone imbalances we all experience as our bodies age.
Dr. Bandeira is pleased to announce his collaboration with Biote® (By-oh-tee), a leading innovator in precision and preventive medicine, especially in the field of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) through hormone pellet therapy.

Before leaving the office after your initial BHRT pellet dose, Premier Medical Concierge will set a follow-up appointment 4-6 weeks post-pellet to assess hormone levels and ensure a symptomatic response to therapy. If needed, a complimentary boost will be provided.
Bioidentical hormones are modified plant-based hormones that have the same structure and function as the hormones in your body, so they are a more natural form of hormone replacement therapy than lab-created synthetic hormones (often made with animal parts or urine).
Under strict federal guidelines, a specially trained compounding pharmacist prepares the pellets by combining a bioidentical hormone (estrogen or testosterone) to a natural plant-source carrier molecule, creating a structurally and physiologically identical molecular structure of hormones that the body produces.
It is natural for your hormone levels to increasingly become less stable as you age. Upon reading your lab results, you might be surprised at how muc particular hormones have nearly depleted to nothing. But, with bioidentical hormones, this is no longer a cause for alarm. Bioidentical hormone therapy can help restore your hormone levels to dramatically reduce symptoms and improve overall health and well-being.
More than likely, yes. Both men and women consistently report similar benefits within just a few weeks of receiving their first pellet insertion. Reported benefits include:
Typical oral How are bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets administered?and transdermal (topical) forms of therapy have variable absorption, resulting in fluctuations of hormone levels that resemble a roller coaster, because they cannot be maintained at a steady state. This, in turn, results in fluctuations in patient mood and energy levels. In contrast, pellets provide on-demand absorption and timed-release of delivery of bioidentical hormones into your system to provide consistent, steady state blood hormone levels over time.
Once Dr. Bandeira has assessed your hormone levels, relevant symptomatology, and medical history, he will use Biote’s evidence-based and data-driven proprietary algorithm to determine the exact dosage required of each hormone (estrogen &/or progesterone) required to optimize your levels.
The pellets are small capsules (about the size of a grain of rice) that contain bioidentical hormones, usually testosterone or estrogen. These pellets are placed directly into the fatty tissue underneath the skin of the gluteus muscle.
Following the application of local anesthetic at the 1 cm incision site, the implantation procedure is easily and painlessly performed, and the incision site is closed with a Steri-Strip. From beginning to end, the entire procedure is completed by Dr. Bandeira inside the office in less than 15 minutes.
The duration of hormone pellet therapy varies depending on the individual and the dosage administered. Normally, hormone pellets last between three and five months before they need to be replaced.
