About Dr. James Altizer

Dr. James Altizer graduated from Davidson College in 1981 and immediately entered the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. After receiving his MD degree in 1985, he traveled to Augusta, GA to complete a 3-year internship and residency in Internal Medicine. To pay back his naval scholarship to medical school Dr. Altizer entered the US Navy and worked as an Internist at the Navy hospital in Beaufort, SC, and subsequently as teaching faculty at Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego, CA. He also served in the first Gulf War during Desert Storm and received a total of 5 decorations prior to leaving the US Navy in 1992. Dr. Altizer spent 11 years as a board-certified Internist. During his 17 years as a Phlebologist (vein disease specialist), he became Board Certified in Phlebology. He is also doubly credentialed in ultrasound.


Being skilled at surgical and injection techniques from his work with vein disease, Dr. Altizer quickly learned stem cell harvesting techniques and in late 2015 decided to dedicate the remainder of his career to stem cell and regenerative therapies. He received expert training from recognized leaders in the regenerative medicine field, training on bone marrow aspiration with Duke University-affiliated physicians. In 2017, he was asked to be guest faculty at The Orthobiologics Institute (TOBI) Annual Meeting in Las Vegas where he taught the liposuction workshop for adipose tissue harvesting. He has performed thousands of injections in the past 4 years, making him by far the most experienced and well-known medical doctor performing stem cell and regenerative therapies in the Carolinas. He has appeared countless times on Charlotte Today over the past 4 years, usually taking with him grateful patients who love telling their stories. Dr. Altizer loves to research and is constantly looking for a new way to improve his craft and provide a higher quality of care for his patients. His greatest strengths are his integrity, ethics, and honesty. If he does not feel like you are a candidate for a procedure, he will tell you. There is no question Dr. Altizer has become the face of stem cell and regenerative therapies in this area. He is looking forward to starting his own private practice and continuing to provide patients in the Carolinas with the best in regenerative medicine.

In addition to stem cell and regenerative therapies, Dr. Altizer also performs Independent Medical Exams (IMEs) and impairment ratings.
