April 21, 2022 at 22:28
Ankle & Foot Associates, LLC, a practice based in Fitzgerald, GA, is happy to announce that the new Saorsa wart removal system is now available through their podiatrists. This is the Saorsa Swift System, which is a surface based microwave generator device that can be used to provide microwave therapy for warts and skin lesions, especially plantar warts that are typically found on the heels. Plantar warts, just like other warts is due to the human papillomavirus (HPV). However, it is quite painful because of the pressure exerted on the feet. The Swift System, which has already been cleared by the FDA, has been noted to be highly effective in removing plantar warts by delivering a low dose microwave energy via a specialized probe in order to stimulate a natural immune response against the HPV virus. More about the Saorsa Swift System can be gleaned at their website at https://www.anklesandfeet.com/.
Between three and four treatments using the Swift System have to be provided, with a spacing of four weeks apart to align with the body’s natural immune cycle. Each treatment is only 5 to 10 minutes long. And there will be only be limited debridement, and no breaking of the skin nor bandages. The pain felt would be variable and patient/lesion specific. Most patients feel some level of discomfort as infected tissue temperatures are rapidly increased during the two second release of energy. The pain immediately abates after the energy delivery is stopped. There is very little post procedural pain, with some patients reporting an immediate decline in pain levels. All patients are able to continue with their day-to-day activities immediately after treatment.
Those who suspect they have a plantar wart and want to have it remove are advised to visit their podiatrist because the longer the treatment is delayed, the more likely the wart will persist. Some of the typical symptoms to be on the look out for are: feeling of “painful pebbles” in the shoes; presence of pain when compressing the sides of the wart; presence of a circular flat spot on the skin with a depressed area in the middle; yellowed appearance with a crust and the presence of small black dots; the lesion on the foot is painful, bleeding, and has changed in color; treatments tried have not worked and the wart has reoccurred or even multiplied; poor sensation in the feet; and unsure if the lesion is a wart of not.
They want to point out that most people with skin lesions, with only a few exceptions, can have this particular treatment. It is advisable to consult with a podiatrist or dermatologist who will evaluate the lesions and offer the appropriate advice. It is also important to ensure that the podiatrist or dermatologist is registered and has provided information on the full range of alternatives available.
