Testosterone levels in men diminish with age as a part of normal aging. Symptoms due to low testosterone may include decreasing erections, sexual desire, mood, sleep, muscle and bone mass with increased lethargy and weight gain. For patients with low testosterone levels, treatment is not always necessary. However, for symptomatic men with low testosterone levels who desire treatment, there are a number of T delivery formulations.
At West Coast Urology, we offer a variety of treatments for this condition. One popular option is the implantation of testosterone pellets under the skin in the office setting. This procedure requires no preparation, and involves insertion of testosterone pellets under local anesthesia into the fat layer above the buttocks, abdominal wall, or thigh.
