Indianola Iowa Podiatrist Offers Plantar Warts Treatment Using New Saorsa Swift Wart Removal Machine

Indianola Foot and Ankle Clinic PLLC, a podiatry practice in Indianola, IA, is providing plantar warts treatment using a new Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine. Just like other kinds of warts, plantar warts are also caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), except that they are located on the soles of the feet. Because of their location, the plantar warts frequently cause pain as pressure is exerted on them while the individual is standing, walking, running, and doing other similar activities. The Swift microwave machine offers a revolutionary way to be rid of the warts. The machine works by directing microwaves at the infected tissue, which rapidly increases its temperature, which then activates the immune response. It is the immune system that eliminates the warts.

Dr. Randy Joe Metzger from Indianola Foot and Ankle Clinic says, “At Indianola Foot and Ankle, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest quality foot and ankle care. Our team of experienced and compassionate staff is committed to providing our patients with the care they need to live their best lives. We offer a wide range of services and are committed to providing our patients with the latest and most innovative foot and ankle care. If you are suffering from the pain and discomfort of plantar warts, our new Swift microwave machine offers a quick and convenient way of getting rid of them.”

It will usually take three to four treatment sessions with the Swift microwave therapy machine to fully eliminate the plantar warts. These sessions are spaced four weeks apart to make sure they are aligned with the body’s natural immune cycle. Each session only lasts for five to 10 minutes.

The Swift machine has an applicator, which is shaped like a pen or wand, which makes it easy for the podiatrist to hold and direct the microwaves accurately towards the affected tissue while avoiding healthy tissue. It is important to note that the pain felt during the treatment session is only present while microwaves are active and the affected tissue’s temperature is rising rapidly. The pain or discomfort immediately ceases once the microwave energy is turned off. There is minimal pain or discomfort after the session. Furthermore, because there is no cut on the skin, there is no need for bandages or dressings.

They also want to point out that only a low dosage of microwave energy is used by the Swift machine. It is also important to note that microwaves have already been applied in medicine for more than 30 years, particularly for the treatment of certain types of cancer. Furthermore, the FDA has approved the use of the Swift machine in the country. Nevertheless, some caution must be exercised when treating certain types of patients, such as those who: are pregnant or breastfeeding; are wearing a pacemaker; have metal plates or pins in their feet; are suffering from poor circulation; or are immune-suppressed.
