Regenerative Medicine

Thomas Hecker DPM is zealous about providing Regenerative Medicine at an affordable price.

“That’s the purpose of why I started the practice here: is to make regenerative medicine treatments and foot and ankle services affordable so people can choose it and receive the benefits. These types of treatments shouldn't be so expensive that it’s only touchable to a select few. I provide a very high-end care for very reasonable costs with high success.”

Interactive, Experienced, Personal

Dr. Hecker’s Fort Collins clinic is the place where he interacts with patients and involves them in the healing process and their treatment planning. He treats his patients like they are family, explaining what the issues are and what treatment options are available.

Beyond being a skilled surgeon, Dr. Hecker does everything to help patients non-surgically, even when other doctors say they cannot help.
