Dr. Joseph Capezio specializes in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormones are medications which are the same as the hormones your body produces naturally. These hormones are derived from plant sources such as soy beans and yams. Bioidentical hormones may be administered in a variety of ways. They may be administered orally, via a patch, a gel placed on the skin, a mist sprayed in the nose, or a cream placed in the vagina. There are many bioidentical hormones that are approved by the FDA so you can be assured of their purity and safety.
Some women may not be appropriate candidates for bioidentical hormone therapy due to their past medical or family histories. Dr. Capezio can evaluate your history and decide if you are an appropriate candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Many women experience symptoms of menopause such as: hot flashes, decreased libido, vaginal dryness and irritability.
