Hormone Replacement Therapy
For anti-aging treatment in Beverly Hills and Bakersfield, you can turn to hormone replacement therapy at Delight Medical and Wellness Center.
Everyone ages, but not everyone needs to struggle with the symptoms that come with age. Hormone replacement therapy can reduce the signs and symptoms of age by restoring hormones to their pre-menopause and andropause levels. Dr. Kerendian offers hormone replacement therapy in Beverly Hills and Bakersfield using injections, gels or oral tablets.
Why Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone imbalance is a common occurrence with age for both men and women. Hormones are chemicals produced by the body’s sexual organs and include estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Hormone production rates naturally decline with age, often starting during the early 40s. Yet, there are a big portion of population that have the condition called Hypogonadism (insufficient testosterone production unrelated to age).
I’ve been a police officer for decades and have sustained many injuries from the job. Seven years ago I underwent major back surgery and had intestinal and hernia complications. My body’s production of testosterone abruptly stopped after the surgery. I’ve tried multiple replacement options. Not only were the gels expensive, but the product was wasted during the application and absorbed in the clothing. The daily use was time consuming. Dr. Kerendian’s pellet method of hormone replacement resolved these issues.

Symptoms of hormone deficiency range from mild to severe and are different for men and women. They often include:
- Reduced sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction (in men)
- Hair loss
- Muscle loss
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood swings
Many people believe these symptoms to be a natural part of aging, but the true cause of their development is reduced hormone levels in the blood stream. Hormone replacement therapy restores hormone levels to relieve such symptoms.
Am I a Candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Dr. Kerendian offers hormone replacement therapy to those with the following conditions:

Prior to hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Kerendian will conduct a full medical examination, including an evaluation of current hormone levels through saliva and urine testing. This allows Dr. Kerendian to obtain a clear understanding of the hormone levels in your body so he can customize your hormone replacement therapy program to your needs.
