Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) aids in healthy aging and weight loss; while managing sexual disorders for both men and women. There are numerous studies highlighting the benefits of being on HRT.
At Superior Medical Centers, we provide evidence-based research to support the benefits of HRT. Dr. Girgis has extensive experience in hormone replacement therapy for men and women. He has hormone replacement therapy experience for over 15 years, delivering scientific and safe treatments, using Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Men tend to realize that they were missing out on the quality of their lives after beginning to experience the positive effects of HRT. Some of the common advantages include increased energy, libido, and overall improved sexual performance.
Dr. Girgis uses evidence-based research studies using Bioidentical HRT to treat hormonal imbalances that affect metabolism causing obesity and other undesirable effects experienced with inadequate hormones in the body.
With every woman, we do an extensive medical literature review to explain major hormone replacement studies including Women’s Health Initiative, Nurse’s health studies and cardiovascular outcomes on HRT. At Superior Medical Centers, we review studies that outline the differences between transdermal versus oral HRT. Risk-Benefit analysis is given to every woman to help make an informed decision regarding starting and continuing Hormone Replacement Therapy. Age of starting HRT is of the essence given that maximum benefit in studies are evident when treatment is started immediately after menopause, rather than waiting more than 10 years after menopause. Still for older women, appropriate dosing and route of administration with properly selected patients, significant benefit can be achieved in improving quality of life and preventing and treating some chronic conditions related to menopause and loss of women hormones such as osteoporosis, vaginal dryness, female sexual dysfunction, and others. Women tend to experience relief of sweating, hot flashes, mood imbalances while reducing the risk of osteoporosis for women that are in perimenopause or have reached menopause. These benefits can lead to improved sleep, sexual function and an improved quality of life.
An extensive literature review is done with every man to explain the cardiovascular and prostate benefits versus risks based on scientific medical evidence from top journals such as the Mayo Clinic, JAMA and other medical scientific literature. Hormone Replacement Therapy in men addresses many chronic symptoms such as male erectile dysfunction, male orgasm disorders, low libido, and premature ejaculation to name a few.
