The History of SottoPelle Physician Hormone Therapy Training

Dr. Gino Tutera was first taught about hormone pellets in 1992 when he took a job at Eisenhower Hospital in Rancho Mirage, CA as the director of the birthing center. Dr. McEwen came up to Dr. Tutera and asked him if he would like to put in a pellet. “Sure,” he said, “but what is a pellet?” It was then that Dr. Tutera felt he finally found the last missing piece of working with bioidentical hormones for women.

In 1993, after Dr. McEwen passed away, Dr. Tutera had a patient base of those needing pellets. At that time, everyone was receiving the same dose. Practicing medicine with common sense, Dr. Tutera figured out that not everyone should get the same dose. Thus the individual dosing was developed. From there in 2002 he created the first online dosing platform, which now holds six patents.

Hormone Therapy Training Pioneer

After years of performing his own research, testing and analysis, Dr. Tutera pioneered the SottoPelle® Method of hormone therapy, based on his proprietary bio-identical pellet hormone delivery system. Numerous research studies now bear out what Dr. Tutera discovered many years ago, and many companies have tried to imitate the original SottoPelle® Method of hormone therapy.

Dr. Tutera enjoyed training providers as he felt they too could finally treat their patients with the best hormone therapy possible. He believed that if you do what you love, the money will come, and he was more interested in providers making the money than himself. Thus the majority of their profits stayed in the providers’ practice! We continue Dr. Tutera’s philosophy today with no contracts, no non-competes, no procedure fees and our free dosing site.

Hormone Replacement Therapy & Subcutaneous Hormone Pellets

The dosage has to be individualized to produce the physiological levels of estradiol and testosterone necessary to produce the beneficial effects on the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, musculoskeletal system, and produce metabolic normality only seen with pellets.

The pellets are the only form of hormone replacement when properly dosed that replicate the protective ratio of estradiol to estrone ratio of 2:1 (Margaret Thom, M.D., 1983).

The SottoPelle Method uses pellets from only 503B outsourcing facilities containing estradiol and testosterone biologically in the structure analyzed by an outside pharmacological lab for potency, purity, sterility, and proper dissolution.

“Together, as a medical team, we can restore human health to its optimal level and reduce the patient overload currently jamming our practices. Best of all, we can help prevent disease and save lives. After all, isn’t that our ultimate mission and purpose in this profession – to do no harm and experience the joy of healing those who seek our help? “
