Dr. R. Stuart Fowler has evaluated nearly 50,000 women during his career as a gynecologist specializing in Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy at Mayo Clinic. He was one of the first to introduce bio-identical estrogen for women in the Valley of the Sun. Up until that time, nearly every physician prescribed conjugated estrogen extracted from the urine of pregnancy mare horses. Over most of his 26 years of affiliation with Mayo Clinic, Dr. Fowler and Dr. Gino Tutera shared many mutual patients. The excellent efficacy of subcutaneous pellet therapy especially with regards to the use of testosterone became very evident compared to the other routes of delivery. Dr. Fowler was asked to join SottoPelle® after his retirement from the Mayo Clinic in the spring of 2013; his acceptance of the position speaks of his testimony as to the value and quality of the SottoPelle® approach and the organization.
Dr. Fowler is from Salt Lake City, Utah and resides in Scottsdale with his wife of 32 years. Their five children reside in four states and practice in fields of rocket science, nursing, medicine, equity research, and surfing. Dr. Fowler is a board certified gynecologist who received his specialty training at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and subsequently was a staff gynecologist at Mayo Clinic Arizona specializing in the use of bio-identical hormones for replacement therapy and vulvovaginal conditions. He has presented numerous lectures on Hormone Replacement Therapy, Testosterone Supplementation for Women and the Use of Progestins, Side Effects and Alternatives to local, national and international audiences. He developed and holds the US Patent for the EndoCurette used in office sampling of the uterine lining. He is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG) and a Fellow of the International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease (ISSVD). He has been nominated to the America’s Top Gynecologists (CRCA) and the Best Doctors of America (BDP&RD).
