Regenerative medicine creates a stimulating factor in one's body, telling it to start to recover in an appropriate way, helping to restore tissue to being whole.
Piezoelectric Impulse Therapy (or Piezo) is an electromagnetic impulse that has the capacity to stimulate one's body to recover from both acute and chronic injuries. Through this unique approach of electromagnetic impulses or shock waves, Piezoelectric Impulse Therapy stimulates the muscle, tendon, bone, and cartilage to begin the healing cascade.
Piezoelectric treatment is a new and innovative treatment that has only recently become available in the United States for patient care.
The impulses from the piezoelectric system are delivered directly to the injured tissues. The focus of the healing cascade is now at reducing inflammation and pain to the injured region, promoting quick and aggressive healing and minimizes (or even eliminates) poor or scarred recovery.
Dr. Thomas Hecker uses the most advanced shockwave system. Unlike other methods that use low impact air impulse, Piezo is a unique electromagnetic impulse system that stimulates tissue, requiring fewer treatments with greater success.
Dr. Hecker graduated Colorado State University in Fort Collins before completing his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago. He completed a two-year podiatric surgical residency at St. Mary's of Nazareth Hospital in Chicago, before entering private practice in 1996.
Since then he as developed effective regenerative and non-surgical treatments for all types of biomechanical injuries and chronic pain.
More about Thomas Hecker DPM and his team.
Thomas Hecker DPM is zealous about providing Regenerative Medicine at an affordable price.
“That’s the purpose of why I started the practice in Fort Collins: is to make regenerative medicine treatments and podiatric services affordable so people can choose it and receive the benefit. These types of treatments shouldn't be so expensive that it’s only touchable to a select few. I provide very high-end care for very reasonable costs–with high success.”
Dr. Hecker’s Fort Collins clinic is 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 the treatment options are. Beyond being a skilled surgeon, Dr. Hecker does everything to help patients non-surgically, even when other doctors say they cannot help.
Dr. Tom Hecker (Podiatrist Fort Collins, Colorado) established his foot and ankle clinic to provide both alternative and new therapies, including traditional treatments.
Affordable treatment that will provide both care-free and long-term comfort is what everyone deserves.
The procedures we offer at Hecker Sports and Regenerative Medicine are comparatively inexpensive and are much more complete having a substantial recovery than other treatments.
There are a lot of people who are not good candidates for surgery simply because of where they are in life, like having to take three months off for surgery.
Our protocols allow patients to recover well without necessarily having to take time off of work. We are here to get patients better in the midst of doing “life”.
The short answer is that our Fort Collins podiatry clinic has a patient-centered focus on non-surgical repair and “return to life activities”, not expensive (and sometimes unnecessary) surgery. We believe it is important for you to understand and have help with all of your healing options and foot maintenance.
Thomas Hecker DPM has a mission: to bring techniques and opportunities to people that are less expensive than conventional procedures, require less downtime, yet still offer the ability for very successful and very high-end recovery.
Hecker Sports and Regenerative Medicine is doing more that just helping to make a body better or building a better scar; we’re restoring the tissue back to its whole, how it was originally intended to function.
