Your hormones help regulate your body, signaling important processes such as hunger and sexual arousal. As we age, it becomes a challenge for our bodies to maintain the ideal hormonal balance that keeps us feeling happy, energized, and clear-headed. The body slows down hormone production, which can cause deficiencies and other problems, such as insomnia, mood swings, and mental health issues. For women in particular, reduced hormone production can lead to menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and decreased energy.
Fortunately, Dr. Morimoto and her team of specialists are here to help you rebalance your body and your life. We offer advanced hormone replacement therapy in the form of testosterone pellet therapy for our male and female patients. Contact our team today to discover how revolutionary non-surgical procedures like hormone replacement therapy in Spokane can give you a new lease on life.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) involves supplementing the body with hormones to replace, replenish, and restore the hormones that the body no longer makes.
Testosterone pellet therapy is a therapeutic option that has a variety of benefits for men and women patients alike. Testosterone pellet therapy can treat:
Testosterone pellet therapy involves supplementing the body with testosterone through an implant that slowly releases controlled amounts of testosterone over time to balance your hormones.
In Spokane, hormone replacement therapy is generally used as a standard treatment for women suffering from menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and weight gain caused by decreased metabolism. HRT performed by Dr. Kai Morimoto and her team allows your body to rebalance itself and ease menopausal symptoms.

Hormone replacement therapy in the form of testosterone pellet therapy is performed in our comfortable Spokane office. The target implantation area will be thoroughly cleansed before and after the procedure. The testosterone pellets used in this procedure are the size of a grain of rice and will be placed into the fatty tissue of the abdomen or buttocks under a local anesthetic. Afterward, a small dressing will be applied with steri-strips over the area.
There is minimal downtime after testosterone pellet implantation in Spokane. Some patients may experience minor discomfort that can be easily treated with an over-the-counter pain reliever such as Ibuprofen and an ice pack. Your recovery period will last a few days, during which you will be expected to avoid exercise (including yoga), running, or playing sports for a day or two. You will also be provided with additional, personalized instructions relating to aftercare and recovery from Dr. Morimoto’s team.
By faithfully following Dr. Morimoto’s post-procedure instructions—which will be given to you prior to your procedure—there will be almost no chance of developing complications.
