Welcome to Cedar Stem Cell Institute

The Cedar Stem Cell institute (CSCI) in Columbus, Ohio was established in 2015 by neurosurgeon Dr. Joseph A. Shehadi, MD, FAANS, FRCSC. The CSCI was created as a first-class institute for treating patients with neurological and musculoskeletal disorders using adult stem cell injections and regenerative medical technology. Cedar Stem Cell Institute was named after the world-famous Cedars of Lebanon which for centuries have been symbolic of longevity and prosperity. We believe that stem cells 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 using adult stem cells—never embryonic—for our stem cell injections and stem cell therapy. We are comprehensive, utilizing stem cells from all of the major tissue sources including bone marrow aspirates. 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 painful joints or spinal disc spaces through stem cell 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 Cedar Stem Cell Institute team consists of several accomplished and compassionate surgeon physicians and PhD researchers who are committed to exceeding your expectations.
