What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy ?

Dr. Windsor consults with both men and women who experience hormonal imbalances in the Atlanta Metro area. These imbalances are influenced by a variety of factors, including aging, stress, and dysfunction of certain endocrine glands which can be addressed through therapy (HRT).

There are two types of hormone replacement; bioidentical and synthetic. Therapy is tailored to each person and requires regular evaluation to ensure benefits continue to outweigh the possible risks.
