Florida Center for Hormones and Wellness helps patients age gracefully & happily
If asked, most people would say they want to age gracefully, live longer and live better. Well, that is within one’s reach with the help of Florida Center for Hormones and Wellness under the direction and expertise of John C. Carrozzella, M.D.
Feeling fatigued, forgetful and not at the top of one’s game can be the results of hormonal imbalances in the body. Hormones are important, because they circulate throughout the body and regulate bodily functions.
Conditions that occur because of age-related hormonal decline include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, loss of bone density, and thyroid issues to name a few. The not-so-pleasant symptoms of menopause are probably the most recognizable effects of decreased hormones in women as they age. But, it is now known that men go through a similar phenomenon known as andropause. So, regardless of gender, hormones affect everyone in one manner or another.
Dr. Carrozzella and his staff of medical professionals at Florida Center for Hormones treat a variety of patients with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), as well as platelet-rich plasma treatments (PRP). Conditions include menopause, andropause, decreased sex drive, urinary incontinence (UI), low testosterone, chronic fatigue, nutritional imbalances, immune system disorders, fibromyalgia and age-related cosmetic issues.
BHRT is designed to restore hormones to levels that normally exist in youthful men and women. Medical literature-supported BHRT and PRP treatments are safe ways to lower the risks of age-related diseases and improve physical functions and appearance. These methods are sanctioned by major medical societies like the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, and they are taught at major medical schools like the University of South Florida and George Washington University.
Hot flashes, decreased libido, confusion, weight gain and urinary incontinence are some of the symptoms many women ages 40-60 endure during menopause and beyond. However, with BHRT, these issues can be greatly decreased, if not “cured.” There is no need to suffer unnecessarily.
It may be an embarrassing issue to discuss for some, but urinary incontinence can decrease one’s quality of life and social activities. The good news is that simply balancing hormones may reverse UI in 50 percent or more of postmenopausal women. Since surgical correction of UI is fraught with potentially devastating complications, nonsurgical corrections such as this present an excellent alternative for many women.
Physical intimacy plays an important part in relationships. Unfortunately, lower levels of essential hormones can hamper natural urges and enjoyment. Now, sexual health for both men and women can be regained and enhanced through the services of Florida Center for Hormones. In addition to BHRT, Dr. Carrozzella specializes in the revolutionary O-Shot for women and Priapus Shot for men. These respective injections have proven to restore a healthy sex drive in patients who choose these options.
Everybody wants to look their best. Dr. Carrozzella also offers nonsurgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox injections; dermal facial fillers; Juvéderm; and Latisse, which is a Food and Drug Administration-approved prescription for the growth of eyelashes.
Dr. Carrozzella has seen great success with the revolutionary Vampire technique that is used as a nonsurgical alternative to surgical face- and breast lifts. The “vampire” name comes from a method that uses healing factors from a patient’s own blood to rejuvenate, refresh and restore the shape of tissue. The blood is placed in a centrifuge to isolate platelets, which are then activated to release growth factors that naturally occur in healing. The growth factors, known as PRP, are injected back into the tissue to stimulate the production of collagen. These procedures take place in the office in as little as 30 minutes.
Florida Center for Hormones also uses the FDA-cleared Sunetics Clinical Laser Unit for hair-loss treatments and to increase hair growth. Both men and women will notice the amazing results, whether the cause is from age-related hair loss, heredity or medical treatments like chemotherapy.
Regardless of the reasons to visit the Florida Center for Hormones, patients can be assured they are in the good hands of a well-trained physician.
Dr. Carrozzella graduated with honors from Yale University with an undergraduate degree in molecular bio-physics and chemistry. He then earned his medical degree at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He has practiced medicine as a successful orthopedic surgeon for more than 25 years. In 2011, he moved his private practice from Tampa to Southwest Orlando in order to pursue his interest in nontraditional medical specialties. He is an advanced fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine, and a member of the International Society for Sexual Medicine and the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health. In August, he will be awarded a master’s degree in nutritional and metabolic medicine from the University of South Florida.
