Flamingo Foot & Ankle, a podiatry practice located in Fort Lauderdale FL, is happy to announce they have a new Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine for use in plantar warts treatment. Plantar warts are small, grainy growths on the skin commonly found on the soles of the feet and are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). This condition is typical in children, adolescents, and the elderly. The pressure exerted on the warts while standing, walking or running is painful and can cause the warts to grow inwards, forming root-like growths deep in the tissue, which is why it is difficult to treat them using topical medication. More details about the podiatry clinic can be obtained by checking out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FlamingoFootandAnkle.
The Swift microwave therapy machine is a revolutionary, FDA approved technology that has been found to be very effective in getting rid of plantar warts. It employs a low dose of microwave that can be precisely directed by the podiatrist to the affected tissue. The microwave energy causes a rapid rise in the temperature of the tissue, which causes the natural immune system to act on getting rid of the root cause of the problem, which is the HPV virus.
Warts are contagious, which means they can be spread to other people. That is why the applicator for the Swift machine has a disposable tip, which has to be replaced to a new one for every treatment session. The machine has an in-built sensor that detects if the applicator tip has not been replaced in which case the machine will not operate until a new disposable tip has been attached to the applicator.
There is minimal pain when treated with the Swift microwave machine. Patients have described the minor pain to be like a scratch or an injection and will only last for the two seconds in which the microwaves are active. The treatment session will be very short, lasting only 5 to 10 minutes, compared to the usual one-hour session. The Swift protocol requires only 3 to 4 treatments. Each treatment session is spaced four weeks apart in order to align them with natural immune cycle of the body. The treatment will only cause limited debridement and there will be no breaking of the skin, which means no bandages or dressings are needed. There is very minimal post-procedural pain, which means patients can continue with their daily chores right after a treatment session.

The Swift machine is considered to be safe. It has been approved by the FDA and only a low dosage of microwave energy is used. Furthermore, the machine has been designed to ensure that microwaves will not scatter to ensure nearby healthy tissue will not be affected by the microwaves.
