When it comes to spine health in Johnstown and Northern Colorado in general, ClinTech Center for Spine Health is led by Dr. Fernando Techy, a premier specialist in the field. His wealth of experience pervades our center for spine health in Fort Collins from top to bottom. So no matter who you interact with when you come to see us, you can be confident that you will be conversing with a team member who is dedicated to one thing - providing high-quality, innovative spine health care.
We have cutting-edge equipment and tools to complement our passion and experience. As such, we are able to offer a host of spine treatments with Dr. Techy at the helm. Below you will find a brief explanation of each of our spinal services - from bulging disc treatment to stem cell treatment to decompression surgery, we’ve got you covered!
Biologics has become a more common use in orthopedic and spine care over the past few years. The pioneering, regenerative treatment can be segmented into two main categories. Growth Factors (PRP) are proteins that can recruit and stimulate cells to aid in the repairment of injury or cellular degeneration. We offer both platelet rich plasma (PRP) and platelet poor plasma (PPP) treatments.
The second autologous (that is, your own) regenerative medicine treatment we offer at ClinTech Spine Center of Fort Collins is called Cell Based Therapies, a form of stem cell spinal treatment. This process involves Bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), which are regenerative cells derived from bone marrow that help stimulate growth. BMAC is used to treat degenerative and acute disease of the spine, knee, hand, foot, elbow, shoulder, and other body parts.
It’s not always necessary for us to provide our patients with joint and spinal injections, as it’s usually plausible to see conservative modalities affect positive change. However, no two ailments or patients are the same. That’s why we offer injectable spinal therapies right here at our spinal clinic, utilizing fluoroscopy, or live x-ray) to guide us, we can provide our treatments with these injection types:
- Biological injections
- Facet joint injections
- Medial branch blocks
- Intra articular steroid injections
- Epidural steroid injections
- Lubricant injections (Hyalgan, Synvisc, Hyaluronic acid)
Don’t hesitate to reach out to our trusted spine health center if you have questions or would like more information in reference to our spinal and joint injection options.
Our spine surgery treatment options include cervical fusion, lumbar fusion, lumbar decompression, lumbar microdiscectomies, not to forget artificial cervical disc placement. Simply because we seek to offer corrective, innovative spinal treatments and back pain relief methods that don’t involve surgery, we also understand that it might be the only solution if you wish to truly get to the root of the issue. We think of spinal surgery as a last resort, typically employed for patients who have extreme issues in their back or neck, among which might be chronic or recurring problems.

He aims to dramatically improve flexibility and mobility for his patients in addition to helping them have a pain-free life. Dr. Techy has helped hundreds of Northern Colorado folks reclaim their livelihood. Dr. Techy will take the entire picture into account, meaning that once all other treatment options have been attempted (or at least considered), Dr. Techy will guide you through which type of spinal surgery would be ideal for your circumstances.
Do you have a torn and thinning disc? A bulging disc? A herniated disc? We at ClinTech have the most recent RFA technology (CosmanRFA-Boston Scientific). If you are having lumbar pain, cervical pain, or sacroiliac pain, we’ll need to see if that pain temporarily responds to steroid injections. If so, it’s possible that you might be a candidate for Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA). RFA involves radio waves which create an electric current. This current is sent to nerves with the express purpose of inhibiting their capacity to transmit pain signals. Keep an eye out for a future post in which will answer FAQs about radiofrequency ablation.
