Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy at Integrative Medica uses stem cells sourced from umbilical cord tissue to help your body regenerate new cells. Stem cells contain proteins called growth factors that promote your body’s natural ability to heal over time. This revolutionary therapy is an alternative treatment to surgery and pain medicine and is useful for anti-aging cosmetic procedures.

What is stem cell therapy used for?

Stem cell therapy works by increasing the number of stem cells within your body, as stem cells tend to decrease with age. These cells can replicate and change into other types of cells within your body. Dr. Schmutz and his team offer stem cell therapy to:

  • Repair muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage
  • Delay aging in body tissues
  • Enhance healing naturally
  • Increase immune system function
  • Reduce chronic knee, hip, and joint pain
  • Diminish chronic inflammation
  • Reduce arthritis pain and stiffness
  • Optimize healing after surgery


Stem cell therapy may help you reduce or eliminate addictive pain medicine and avoid invasive surgical procedures. Stem cells have anti-aging properties, as they increase collagen and elastin production to promote younger-looking, revitalized skin, and hair restoration. Stem cells Dr. Schmutz and his team use procedures that pass the tests for quality, safety, and purity.

Is stem cell therapy right for me?

Prior to stem cell therapy at Integrative Medica, Dr. Schmutz reviews your medical history and asks about any symptoms you may have. He completes a comprehensive physical examination and might recommend blood tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures to determine the cause or severity of an injury.

What happens during stem cell treatment?

Stem cell therapy is an in-office procedure that’s fast and virtually painless. Dr. Schmutz can numb the treatment area prior to each injection to optimize comfort. He injects stem cells into areas of an injury, pain, or aging skin to promote cell regeneration and tissue repair.

After treatment, there’s no downtime. You can resume your normal everyday routine right away. Dr. Schmutz might recommend a series of stem cell treatments with periodic maintenance injections to help you achieve the best results.

When will I notice results?

After stem cell therapy, your body continues to experience new cell growth and tissue regeneration over time. Expect to achieve maximal results after about 10-12 weeks. Everybody is different, and individual results vary, but Dr. Schmutz tailors each stem cell treatment to your specific needs.

Don’t let signs of aging or chronic pain diminish your quality of life. Book an appointment with Integrative Medica by phone or online to find out if stem cell therapy is right for you.
