Welcome to Phenicell Regenerative Institute

Our History:

The Phenicell Regenerative Institute (PRI) is a privately held company established in 2015, in Columbus Ohio, by neurosurgeon Dr. Joseph A. Shehadi, MD, FAANS, FRCSC. The PRI was created as a first-class institute for treating patients neurological and musculoskeletal disorders using regenerative medical technology. More recently, we expanded services to patients with autoimmune & inflammatory diseases, and cardiopulmonary diseases.

We chose the name, Phenicell, which is the joining of the words Phoenix, Phoenicia, and natural biologics. The Phoenix bird undergoes repeated cycles of burning and "rebirth" with perpetual healing, repair, and triumph. Furthermore, Phoenicians were great innovators in the ancient civilizations. Their best-known legacy is the world's oldest alphabet and innovations in shipbuilding, navigation, industry, agriculture, and government. Likewise, we believe that natural biologics have a potentially transformational effect on the practice of medicine and aspire to be at the forefront regarding the treatment, research, and education of this technology.



Our institute only use adult natural biologics–never embryonic–for any of our natural biologic treatments. We make it a point to never over promise and never overcharge our patients.



Phenicell is rigorous in our commitment to regulatory standards which are important for public safety and product quality. We work with several regulatory bodies to maintain proper compliance and integrity. These include Good Tissue Practices, Homologous use and 21 CFR part 1271-HCT/P regulations.

We are comprehensive, utilizing natural biologics from the major tissue sources including bone marrow aspirates and mesenchymal natural biologics from umbilical cord blood. Furthermore, we harness and utilize the healing powers of one's own platelet-rich plasma (PRP). We are set up to provide these healing agents intravenously (IV), or directly into the spinal fluid (intrathecal) or into affected joints or spinal disc spaces through natural biologic injections. We also utilize novel protocols which involve various combinations of these treatment modalities. We custom tailor the desired treatment to the individual patient.

The Phenicell Regenerative Institute team consists of several accomplished and compassionate surgeon physicians and PhD researchers who are committed to exceeding your expectations.
