The BioTE Story
Gary Donovitz, MD, is the founder of BioTE Medical, LLC. A board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist, Dr. Donovitz founded his own personal practice in 1985 and has since sought to provide each patient with compassionate high-quality care for over 30 years.
But the BioTE story truly begins after Dr. Donovitz witnessed how bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) transformed one of his patients. Dr. Donovitz knew that he had a duty to research and understand the hormone therapy that had helped relieve his patient of her symptoms and return to her best life.
Dr. Donovitz has dedicated himself to pioneering BHRT, and more specifically pellet therapy, through founding BioTE Medical, LLC. He has been at the frontier of bioidentical hormone replacement research for over 20 years, and his company BioTE Medical, LLC is a leading innovator in subcutaneous hormone pellet therapy.
The BioTE Mission
BioTE Medical is dedicated to helping patients live better, longer by changing the way health care is practiced on a global level. Hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems that exist in our body, and as we age, or in some cases even earlier, these hormones can become unbalanced causing a variety of unwanted side effects. BioTE Medical believes that we may be able to age healthier and live happier, while avoiding over-medication, through hormonal balance. By partnering with medical providers, BioTE Medical can share research, knowledge, and a better method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with the world. Together, over 4,400 trained and certified BioTE providers have performed over 1.7 million pellet insertions.
The BioTE Method
The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses pellets that contain either bioidentical testosterone or estrogen. Each patient’s pellet therapy is customized specifically to their needs based on extensive lab work and an office visit with a certified BioTE provider. Pellets are placed subcutaneously (just beneath the skin) in a nonsurgical insertion. They then release a continuous stream of bioidentical hormones for three to six months, during which the pellets are absorbed into the body. Pellet therapy is paired with the BioTE-backed nutraceutical line CORE+, created specifically to supplement BHRT and help improve hormone health.
Certified BioTE providers only use bioidentical hormones which may help avoid unwanted side effects. They are compounded in quality-controlled outsourcing facilities within the U.S.
