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!

Regenerative Medicine

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.

Spinal And Joint Injections

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.

Fort Collins Spine Surgery

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.

Dr. Techy is an expert in his field with regards to spinal surgery and achieving positive outcomes with his patients in mind. 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.

Radiofrequency Ablation

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.

Osteocool™ Radiofrequency Ablation

OsteoCool™ RF Ablation, a recently-developed technology, is a way to treat cancer pain caused by bone tumors. If someone’s cancer metastasizes (meaning it moves into the local bone), it can be incredibly painful. Day to day tasks and chores become overwhelmingly challenging, and treatment must be sought out. OsteoCool™ RF Ablation is a form of radiofrequency ablation which harnesses low-current, alternating power to generate thermal energy. Ablation means to completely destroy, and that is the aim (and often the outcome) of the cancerous cells targeted in this treatment. It’s minimally invasive and predictable, making it an attractive option for both patients and administers of the ablation treatment.

Bone Health – Kyphoplasty

If you are without strong bones, your joints and spine will likely suffer. And while most everyone deals in one way or another with the natural aging process of bone-quality deterioration, we at ClinTech are experts in prescribing treatments that will effectually optimize your bone health. Such is our comprehensive care at Northern Colorado’s top clinic for spine health.

If there has been trauma or neoplasms, you might have a compression fracture if bone health has sufficiently deteriorated. We offer Kyphoplasty, a spinal procedure in which bone cement is injected through the skin into fractured vertebra to relieve pain, as a way to treat these compression fractures in the spine. During this process, we utilize our live x-ray functionality to guide our efforts. We encourage our readers to watch the video found in the link above, which directs you to our dedicated Kyphoplasty page.

Consider ClinTech, The Trusted Center For Spine Health

As you can tell from the descriptions above, we have a specialized clinic at the disposal of our patients. We focus on healing patients, not simply attacking symptoms, and that is a massive contributor to our success along Colorado’s Front Range.

Another reason is that we have our own dedicated department of research. Dr. Techy, in fact, has been conducting research in this field for over 20 years now. He is an internationally renowned clinician who has garnered the respect of his peers throughout the world.

With this in mind, we are proud to be able to offer qualified patients the opportunity to take part in a multi-site registry program in addition to interventional clinical trials and observational trials. This opportunity has a twofold benefit. First, it gives patients the opportunity to take advantage of potentially groundbreaking medical advancements which quite possibly could have a dramatically positive impact. Secondly, folks who participate in the trial are contributing to something greater than themselves – you can be active in the betterment of treatment for future patients, like many have done before you.
