Associated Podiatry of Central Virginia, a podiatry practice in Lynchburg VA, is happy to announce they have a new Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine to be used for treating plantar warts. The conditions they treat at this clinic include: ingrown toenails, bunions, corns, calluses, hammertoes, diabetic foot care, warts, heel spurs/plantar fasciitis, ankle instability, flat feet, athlete's foot, Achilles tendonitis, neuromas, geriatric foot care, ankle sprains, toenail fungus, and peripheral neuropathy. More about Associated Podiatry of Central Virginia can be gleaned from their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Associated-Podiatry-of-Central-Virginia-PC/158665644167898.
Dr. Scot Zindel from the Associated Podiatry of Central Virginia says, “Plantar warts are caused by the HPV virus and cause tiny cuts and breaks on the bottom of your feet. While most plantar warts are not a major health concern, it is advised you see a doctor to have the warts examined and removed. Some symptoms include small, rough lesions on the base of the foot, calluses in one spot, and tenderness when walking or standing for long periods of time.”
The Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine employs a low amount of microwave energy, which is directed precisely at the wart to rapidly increase its temperature. This stimulates the natural immune response, which will then act to get rid of the root cause of the problem, which is the HPV virus. The Swift machine is regarded to be safe as it is FDA approved and it only delivers a low dosage of microwave energy. Furthermore, microwaves have already been in use in medicine for about 30 years in all throughout the world. It has been used for the treatment for different kinds of cancer, including liver, lung, kidney, and breast cancer.
The Swift machine even has a fail-safe mechanism for avoiding cross-contamination. It has an applicator that is shaped like a pen to allow the podiatrist to precisely aim the microwave energy to the affected tissue. The applicator has a disposable tip that has to be replaced for each new treatment session. The Swift machine has an in-built detector that prevents the machine from operating if the tip has not been replaced with a new one.
Meanwhile, the treatment session when using the Swift machine will only last for around 5 to 10 minutes, which is very short when compared to the usual one-hour sessions. And the entire Swift protocol will only need a total of 3 to 4 treatment sessions. In between sessions there must be a spacing of four weeks to make sure that the treatment is aligned with the natural immune cycle of the body.
Patients won’t have any bandages or dressings because the treatment will not cause any cut on the skin, unlike other kinds of treatment. There is also minimal pain or discomfort, which means the patient can immediately get back to whatever they were doing before the treatment.
Associated Podiatry of Central Virginia provides the highest standard of care in podiatry. They fully understand that loss of function and pain in the feet and ankles can be a significant obstacle. That is why their primary goal is to resolve the problems about function and pain in order to help the patient live a normal life. They are committed to finding the underlying causes of podiatric issues and offering a solution for the specific problem. This podiatry clinic is led by Dr. Scot C. Zindel, DPM, who received his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine. He is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery for foot surgery and by the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and Primary Podiatric Medicine for podiatric orthopedics. He has also been voted Best Bedside Manner Award in Central Virginia in Our Health Magazine in 2011.
