Paragon Podiatry Acquires New Swift Plantar Wart Treatment Machine
Paragon Podiatry, a podiatric care clinic in Bronx, New York City, is pleased to announce their recent acquisition of their new Swift Microwave Wart Therapy machine that can be used for removing plantar warts. These are warts found on the heels or soles of the feet and are typically more painful than other warts because of their location where there is much pressure exerted on them. The Swift microwave therapy system is based on an FDA-approved microwave device where microwave energy is directed towards the infected tissue using a specialized probe. Dr. Ernest L. Isaacson, DPM PC, podiatrist at Paragon Podiatry, says, “Plantar warts or verrucae are easy to pick up, and most often don’t cause any real harm. However, they can be painful and unsightly, so if you want them removed, call us to schedule a consultation. Those who want to know more about us can also follow our Twitter page.”
Plantar warts or verrucae are also caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) just like the other warts, and the microwave energy works by stimulating the body’s immune system to attack the HPV infected tissue by increasing its temperature. It is important to note that those who have diabetes should also consult with a doctor if they have plantar warts because poor circulation or lack of feeling in the feet may result into a more serious problem like an ulcer.
The Swift system is an advanced therapy that utilizes microwave energy to treat plantar warts. A specialized probe is used to target the affected tissues with precision. In many cases, only two or three treatment sessions with Swift may be required to resolve a patient’s problem with plantar warts. These treatment sessions are held once a month to align with the body’s immune system.
Dr. Ernest L. Isaacson says, “Prevention of warts is the best way to deal with them, so don’t go barefoot in public places like locker rooms. Wear plastic or rubber shower shoes, slides, flip-flops, or something similar to reduce the risk of infection. Look after your feet, too, keeping them and your footwear as dry and clean as possible. Call us today if you have plantar warts that need treating, or book an appointment using the online form. You may also want to follow our Facebook page.”
Patients who undergo the treatment provided using the Swift Microwave Wart Therapy machine may feel the same discomfort as when getting an injection or a small scratch but this discomfort or pain will only last for a few seconds. There might be some soreness felt after a Swiss treatment session but this will not last long and will not disrupt the daily routine of patients. Patients have reported being able to return to their daily activities right after treatment.
Paragon Podiatry was founded to offer top quality medical care for foot and ankle issues, ranging from pediatrics to geriatrics, in the Bronx, Manhattan, and East Setauket in New York City. They are keen to educate and inform their patients in a convenient and comfortable environment. They want to advise those who have problems with their feet, whether it is bunions, heel pain, or other typical foot injuries, to consult with a quality podiatrist who is experienced in foot surgery and all other aspects of podiatry. They believe that informed patients are better prepared in making important decisions about their health and well being. That is why they have included an extensive section on their website that discusses a wide range of topics related to podiatry and podiatric diagnoses and treatments.
