Podiatrist in Lewis Center Ohio Gets Saorsa Swift Wart Removal Machine for Plantar Warts Treatment
December 13, 2022 at 23:08
Mid-Ohio Foot and Ankle Specialists, a podiatry practice in Lewis Center, Ohio, is pleased to announce that they have recently acquired a Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine for plantar warts treatment. This compact microwave machine delivers low dose microwaves to the affected tissue, and this rapidly increases its temperature, which then causes the body’s immune system to respond. Patients find the treatment to be convenient with minimal discomfort. In addition, the treatment is fast and doesn’t cause any break on the surface of the skin nor does it damage tissue from the point of application. More about the podiatry practice can be gleaned from their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/people/Mid-Ohio-Foot-and-Ankle-Specialists/100086994819764/.
Plantar warts are inconveniently located on the soles of the feet, which means that the patient suffers from pain while walking, running, or doing activities that happen to cause pressure to be exerted on the warts. The Swift machine sends an accurate and highly controlled microwave energy dose to a specific depth into the skin. This doesn’t cause a break on the skin surface, unlike salicylic acid, cryotherapy or laser ablation. The microwaves increase the energy of the water molecules in the affected tissue and this results into a rapid rise in temperature, which activates the body’s immune response. Furthermore, no bandages or dressings are needed, and the treatment session will only last for five to 10 minutes.
The Swift machine also provides cleaner and simpler treatments. There is no smoke or plume unlike with laser and electrocautery devices that can be dangerous to both the clinician and the patient. The machine has also been designed to ensure that the microwaves only travel in straight lines and have no lateral spread as can be observed in cryotherapy. And studies have shown that there is no scarring and patients have only experienced minimal post-procedural pain.
This compact microwave therapy machine is also provided with a safety feature as it has a disposable tip that prevents cross-contamination. It has a sensor that detects if the tip has not been changed. It will only allow the machine to be turned on after the tip has been replaced with a new one. In addition, the depth that is reached by the microwaves can be accurately set, such as between 3.5 to 4 mm in the skin, ensuring minimal effect on healthy tissue.
It is also important to note that microwaves offer a safe method of treatment for plantar warts because they have been in clinical use for more than 30 years. And microwaves are a type of non-ionizing radiation, which means they can’t cause damage to the DNA of living things. Furthermore, the microwave energy produced is at very low levels. Nevertheless, some caution must be exercised for some patients such as: patients suffering from poor circulation; patients suffering from conditions that affect the capability of the body to heal; those who have metal plates or pins in their feet; women who are pregnant or breastfeeding; those who are wearing a pacemaker; and those who are immune-suppressed.
Mid-Ohio Foot and Ankle Specialists is headed by Dr. Vincent Staschiak DPM, who is one of the top podiatrists in the country that can provide high intensity shock wave therapy for the treatment of heel pain with a 92+% success rate.

He is board certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and by the Academy of Physicians in Wound Healing. He is a fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.
