Jamil Bashir, MD
Dr. Bashir is the medical director of Ocyon Interventional Regenerative Medicine, South Florida’s Regenexx affiliate clinic. Dr. Bashir became fascinated with the growing field of Regenerative Medicine, largely out of his personal experience with a traumatic nerve injury earlier in his life. The idea of using the body’s own healing powers to promote the regeneration of injured tissue resonated deeply as his own recovery was prolonged, with current medical treatments offering little at the time.
Dr. Bashir’s vision to create a clinic that integrates the cutting edge advances in the field of Regenerative Medicine with a comprehensive understanding of the beneficial effects of diet and exercise, as well as traditional forms of medicine, led to his founding of Ocyon Interventional Regenerative Medicine.
A graduate of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, he completed residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. While both researching and publishing in the field during his time at UM, he chose to further his training by completing a fellowship in Interventional Orthopedics at the Centeno-Schultz clinic in Broomfield, Colorado.
Under the guidance of Dr. Chris Centeno and Dr. John Schultz, both recognized pioneers in the field of Regenerative Medicine, he was trained in the most advanced procedures currently available. After his successful fellowship he was honored to remain with the clinic as an attending physician, further refining his skills. His work with the clinic led to a position as a senior Instructor with the Interventional Orthopedic Foundation, a non-profit that trains doctors in advanced Regenerative Orthopedic procedures.
Following his time at the Centeno-Schultz clinic, Dr. Bashir worked as a consultant with the Regenexx corporation setting up clinics around the country and training other Regenexx doctors in advanced procedures. In addition to his role as medical director of Ocyon, he also holds a medical license in the Cayman Islands, and continues to work with Regenexx as a staff physician at the Grand Cayman clinic, where he offers expanded stem cell procedures to patients.
In addition to his traditional Medical training he has been practicing Yoga and Chi Kung (Chinese meditation) for over 15 years.
Dr. Bashir believes strongly in educating and empowering his patients to help them overcome their physical problems and achieve optimal health.
Dr. Bashir is fluent in both English and Spanish.
