Typical foot conditions they treat include: bunions, corns, calluses, hammertoes, diabetic foot, warts, plantar fasciitis, athlete’s foot, Achilles tendonitis, neuromas, neuropathy, and flat feet. Their specialty services include: Treace lapiplasty, bunion surgery, custom molded orthotics, and wound care. More information can be gleaned from their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FeetFirstOfNewJersey.
The Swift protocol can eliminate plantar warts after just three to four treatment sessions with each session lasting for about 5 to 10 minutes. This is convenient for both the podiatrist and the patient because treatment sessions often last for an hour. These sessions are then spaced four weeks apart so that the treatment will be aligned with the natural immune cycle of the body because this microwave therapy technique of rapidly increasing the temperature of the affected tissue depends on the natural immune response. The pain or discomfort during the treatment session is minimal and will only be felt by the patient while the microwave energy is being directed at a wart, which will only last for a few seconds. Most patients have reported the pain or discomfort as something like a scratch or an injection.
Plantar warts, just like other warts, are due to the human papilloma virus (HPV) but it is their location that makes them painful and uncomfortable. They are usually found on the soles of the foot, which ensures that pressure will always be exerted on them each time the patient is walking or running. This pressure pushes it deeper into the tissue, and these warts tend to have root-like growths under the skin, which makes them difficult to treat with topical medication. That is why the Swift therapy machine uses microwaves that can penetrate deep into the tissue, causing the temperature of the affected tissue to rise rapidly, which stimulates the natural immune response, which will get rid of warts.
It is important to note that the Swift microwave therapy is a safe kind of treatment, first of all because the FDA has approved it for use in the United States. The dosage of microwave energy is also quite low. It even has an in-built sensor that detects if the disposable tip of the machine’s applicator, which is used to precisely aim the microwaves, has not been replaced with a new one in which case it will not operate. This is to prevent cross-contamination because warts are contagious.
It is also important to observe that the Swift microwave therapy machine treatment will not cause a cut on the skin. This implies that bandages and dressing will not be needed, which is convenient for the patients because they can immediately return to whatever they have been doing before the session.
Dr. Jim Williamson heads Feet First of New Jersey LLC earned his bachelor’s degree in biology at the University of Delaware and his podiatry degree from the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine. Next, he finished his PMSR/RRA surgical residency at Kennedy, now Jefferson, hospitals at Cherry Hill, Stratford, and Washington Township where he was the chief resident from 2016 to 2017. Then he founded his private practice in Brick, NJ. Later on, he met his wife, Nicole, from Hammonton, NJ, so he moved to Hammonton where he spent almost four years at Go Feet. They had a son who was a breech baby, so he named his newly established practice, Feet First.
