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.
Dr. Hecker has treated thousands of foot pain and ankle issues in his Fort Collins podiatry practice. His goal is to get to the root of the issue of what is causing your pain and symptoms, getting you back to the things that you like (and need) to do.
Whether you participate in a sport, use your body to work, or you need to get back to enjoying activities with family and friends, Hecker Sports and Regenerative Medicine works to renew your strength.
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.

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”.
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.
