Plantar warts are caused by the HPV virus and can cause tiny cuts and breaks on the bottom of a person’s feet. While most plantar warts are usually not the cause for major health concern, it is advisable to see a doctor to have the warts examined and removed. Some symptoms of plantar warts are small, rough lesions on the base of the foot, calluses in one spot and tenderness when walking or standing for long periods of time. Unlike other types of warts, plantar warts are typically quite painful due to the pressure from walking and standing, which forces them to grow into the skin. Like all warts, Plantar warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) virus, and underneath the skin, the wart can have finger-like roots that reach down and grow, making them very difficult to treat effectively from the surface.

With the new Saorsa Swift wart removal treatment available at Dr. Hartung’s clinic, patients can have their warts treated effectively with minimal hassle and discomfort. This new and effective treatment can be used for surface-based skin lesions, primarily warts. Swift is a cutting edge, FDA Cleared technology that has been proven highly effective in the removal of plantar warts. The treatment delivers low dose microwave energy through a specialized probe that targets and effectively treats the underlying HPV virus by stimulating a natural immune response in the body. The treatment is even more effective as it addresses the root cause, not just the symptom. Learn more here: https://web.facebook.com/StevenHartungDPM?_rdc=1&_rdr.

The Saorsa Swift method involves between 3-4 treatments, set four weeks apart so that they align with the body’s natural immune cycle. Each treatment lasts 5-10 minutes and involves limited debridement, no breaking of the skin and no bandages. Regarding the treatment itself, the pain is variable and patient/lesion specific, and most patients typically feel some level of discomfort as infected tissue temperatures are rapidly elevated over a 2-second dose of energy. The pain immediately subsides after the treatment process, and there is very limited post procedural pain, with most patients reporting an immediate reduction in pain levels. No home treatment is required between treatments, so patients can resume their daily activities immediately post treatment. Since Swift harnesses the power of the patient’s immune system to target the root cause of the wart, the success rate is significantly higher compared to other treatment methods. With any sort of lesion or wart on the feet, regardless of what may be the cause, it is best to show it to a doctor as soon as possible. Learn more here: https://twitter.com/DrStevenHartung.
