Las Vegas Podiatrist Provides Plantar Warts Treatment Using Saorsa Swift Wart Removal Machine
Swenson Foot & Ankle, a podiatry clinic in Las Vegas, NV, is pleased to announce that they have recently acquired the Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine that uses microwaves to eliminate plantar warts. The podiatrist uses the Swift machine to apply a small dose of microwave energy to the affected tissue for the purpose of increasing its temperature quickly as a way to stimulate the natural immune response. More information about this and the different services provided by Swenson Foot & Ankle can be found by visiting their website swensonfootankle.com.
Plantar warts can be quite painful because they are located on the soles of the feet. This means that pressure is likely to be frequently exerted on them while the person is walking, running, or doing any activity that uses the feet. In addition, plantar warts have roots that are deep inside the tissue, which makes them quite a challenge to treat with topical medication. And unlike other ways of treatment that have to break through the skin to reach the wart inside, the microwaves can be adjusted to penetrate to a specific depth and act directly on the tissue affected by the wart. There is no break on the skin and there is no damage to the surrounding tissue. Thus, no bandages and dressings are provided after the treatment session. And aside from a brief ache as the temperature of the affected tissue rises rapidly, the procedure is practically painless and the patient can immediately get back to work as if nothing happened right after the session.
It has been observed that the Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine is very effective in removing plantar warts. In addition, it is regarded as a safe treatment because it only uses a low microwave energy dosage that is focused directly on the affected area. Some patients who have certain conditions, however, may have to be assessed first if they are planning to get the treatment. These include: those who are immune-suppressed; those who are pregnant or breastfeeding; those who have metal plates or pins in their feet; those who have a pacemaker; those who suffer from poor circulation; and those who have conditions that affect the capability of the body to heal.
Aside from plantar warts, Swenson Foot & Ankle also provides care for various foot and ankle issues. These include: arthritis; bunions; burning pain; calluses; corns; diabetic foot care; fractures; flat feet; ganglion cyst; gout; heel pain; heel spur; high arches; ingrown toenails; peripheral arterial disease; plantar fasciitis; neuropathy; sports injuries; and tendon injuries.
Dr. Grant Swenson, podiatrist at Swenson Foot & Ankle, says, “There are a variety of reasons why you may need to see a foot doctor. The musculoskeletal system of the feet, ankles, and lower legs involve many different parts that have to work together in unison to create smooth and pain-free movement. If any of these parts are not functioning properly, the whole system can suffer! Luckily, we are highly skilled in treating a variety of conditions and issues. Whether you have slight discomfort or severe pain, we can provide you with care that allows you to live the lifestyle you want!”
