Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone plays a key role in muscle and bone health, cognition, red blood cell formation, sperm production and more. Its levels decline in men for a variety of reasons, including cancer treatments, injury to the testicles and aging. Some men with Low T experience a loss of sex drive and have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection (ED). Other symptoms include depression, weakness, low energy and memory problems.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy, or TRT, helps to restore normal testosterone levels. The most common forms of TRT are gels, patches and injectable medications. Injections are given in large muscles such as the buttocks and thighs on a weekly or biweekly basis. Our experts can teach you to administer these short-acting injections yourself at home, or we can give them in our office.
