Is this tire fixable?

I was out on some trails and slid into a fallen tree, the tree got caught in my rim and when I tried to get out a must have hit the fill nozzle on the tire (like the one in the picture below) because when I bend it with my hand more air comes out. I was able to change it out for my spare and keep going but I was wondering if this is fixable because I'd rather not have to get another tire because they are around 200 dollars for one.

Thanks, I just looked up a video on how to replace them. For some reason I thought the stem was a part of the actual tire. Looks very simple to replace which is great.

Valve stems are definitely separate from the tire and easily/inexpensively replaced by any tire store.

Where I get my tires at, the green valve stem cap means nitrogen filled.
Just an FYI.

That was just a reference picture, mine is all black. Got it fixed at a local tire shop for 12$👍

Back in the old days, the valve stem was part of the inner tube, thats probably what you're remembering.

Yeah ya gotta remember the old days.
Back when you had a tube in the tire.
Get a flat, break the tire down,,,patch the tube,,,and you're good to go.
The valve stems were tougher too because they were attached to the tube.
