SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SottoPelle, an internationally recognized bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for both men and women, has expanded its availability on the East Coast through the Virtua health system in southern New Jersey. Dr. Gino Tutera, MD, FACOG, Medical Director of SottoPelle Therapy in Phoenix, AZ, also serves as Medical Director for the Virtua program.
"We began working with Virtua five years ago on a very small scale," says Dr. Tutera. "But demand has grown dramatically via word of mouth, and the program has now expanded to include two physicians to treat women and men suffering from menopause and andropause symptoms."
The SottoPelle method of hormone replacement therapy utilizes small subcutaneous bio-identical hormone pellets placed painlessly under the skin. The pellets, in the size and shape of tiny pearls, work in harmony with the body's circulation system to maintain optimum hormone levels.
Dr. Tutera explains that neither women nor men need to suffer with the negative effects of hormone imbalance including fatigue, mood swings and other systemic issues.
Virtua is a comprehensive health system providing prevention, wellness, ambulatory care and acute care to residents of southern New Jersey and surrounding states of Pennsylvania and Delaware. It is notable for its programs for women's health and delivers over 8,000 babies a year.
"We are gratified to be able to bring this therapy to the men and women of our region," says Richard P. Miller, Virtua President and CEO. " It has made a significant difference in the lives of the people we treat. Our patients are passionate about the benefits SottoPelle has had on both their minds and bodies."
