NYC Podiatrist Has a New Saorsa Swift Wart Removal Machine for Plantar Warts Treatment

NYC Foot & Ankle Center, a podiatry clinic in New York, NY, has recently acquired a new Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine for use in plantar warts treatment. Plantar warts are small growths on the skin that are usually found on the soles of the feet. Just like with all warts, these are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). It is common in children, the elderly, and teenagers. More information about the podiatry center can be gleaned from their website at

Plantar warts are uncomfortable and painful, particularly when pressure is exerted on them while standing, walking, or running. The pressure pushes them deeper into the tissue and they have root-like growths inside the affected tissue, which makes it difficult to treat the warts with topical medication. The Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine uses a low dosage of microwave energy, which is directed precisely at the wart to quickly raise its temperature. This serves to activate the natural immune response, which will then act on eliminating the underlying cause of the issue, which is the HPV virus.

The Swift machine is FDA approved and is considered to be safe as it only applies a low dosage of microwave energy. It is also important to note that microwaves have been used in medicine for three decades in various parts of the world. It has been used for the treatment of various kinds of cancer.

Warts are contagious and can be spread to other people. That is why the Swift machine has a disposable tip on its applicator. The applicator is shaped like a pen to allow the podiatrist to accurately aim the microwaves at the wart. The disposable tip of the applicator has to be replaced with a new one each time a treatment session is started. To ensure that this is not forgotten, the Swift machine has an in-built detector that will ensure the disposable tip is a new one. This detector will not allow the machine to operate until the disposable tip has been replaced, ensuring there will be no cross-contamination.

With the Swift machine, a treatment session will be short, lasting only from 5 to 10 minutes, which is a significant improvement from the typical one-hour sessions. The Swift protocol will only need a total of 3 to 4 treatments. Treatment sessions have to be spaced four weeks apart to ensure that the treatment is aligned with the natural immune cycle of the body.

The Swift treatment will also cause minimal debridement and will not cause any cuts on the skin, which means there will be no need for bandages or dressings. There is also very minimal pain after the treatment, which means there will be no downtime for the patient. The patient can simply get back to what they have been doing before the treatment.
