Foot and Ankle Associates of Southern New Hampshire, based in Derry, NH, has announced that they have acquired a Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine that they will use for treating plantar warts. Dr. Drew Taft DPM, who is one of the podiatrists at the podiatry clinic, wants to point out that the Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine has been designed to help eliminate plantar warts by directing a small dose of microwave energy to the affected area to quickly elevate its temperature and stimulate the patient’s immune response. More information about the podiatry clinic can be obtained from their Facebook page at https://web.facebook.com/FootandAnkleAssociatesofSouthernNH/?_rdc=1&_rdr.

Many people would likely want to be rid of their plantar warts because these are warts that are found on the soles of the feet and are very painful, particularly when walking or when pressure is exerted on the warts. In addition, pressure exerted on the warts will cause them to grow inwards, which makes them very difficult to treat from the outside. The principle of the Saorsa Swift machine is to focus a small dose of microwave energy that will penetrate deep down so that the temperature of the affected tissue will be increased rapidly and this will activate the immune response.

This microwave therapy machine has been found to be very effective in treating the plantar warts. And the low microwave energy dosage and the fact that it is directed only at the affected area, ensure that the procedure is safe for most patients. However, some patients who have certain conditions are urged to consult with a podiatrist first. These include: those who have a pacemaker; those who are pregnant or breastfeeding; those who are immune-suppressed; those who suffer from poor circulation; those who have metal plates or pins in their feet; and those who have conditions that affect the capability of the body to heal.

The Swift microwave therapy procedure will only need three to four treatment sessions and the sessions will be done four weeks apart to make sure that they will be in syn with the patient’s natural immune cycle. This is because the treatment takes advantage of the immune response of the body. Each treatment session will last for only five to 10 minutes. And there will be no need for any dressings, anesthetic, or bandages. However, some patients may want to apply a topical anesthetic approximately 45 minutes before the session as a way to minimize the pain. Pain may be felt briefly during the session when the affected tissue’s temperature is elevated rapidly by the low dose of microwave energy.
