Maine Podiatrist Offers Solution For Painful Warts With Revolutionary Microwave Plantar Wart Treatment

August 25, 2022 at 21:22

Dr. Kurlanski and her team at Lighthouse Foot and Ankle Center, which provides comprehensive foot and ankle care to patients in Scarborough, Maine, have announced that it is now making available the Saorsa Swift Wart Removal System for treating plantar warts. Scarborough readers can find out more about the podiatrist clinic by heading over to its website at:

The Saorsa Swift Wart Removal System rapidly increases the temperature of soft tissue to coagulate it. The result is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the root cause of the condition. Since the system delivers a highly targeted and controlled dose of energy to a pre-determined depth in the skin, it solves a lot of the problems that other traditional treatments of plantar warts suffer from.

For example, cryotherapy is one of the most popular treatments for plantar warts in the country. However, it uses liquid nitrogen to freeze plantar warts which can penetrate the skin and form blisters. The procedure, therefore, ends up being painful and it takes a week or so for the dead tissue to slough off. Other treatments such as salicylic acid and laser ablation are similarly destructive to the skin surrounding plantar warts.

The Saorsa Swift System is much gentler and more precise leading to almost painless treatments that take less time. Saorsa’s microwave-based plantar wart treatment system has been used in more than 30,000 procedures across the UK, Canada, and Australia. It was recently approved for use in the United States by the FDA.

Dr. Kurlanski talked about the addition of the Swift Wart Removal System to the Maine podiatry center’s already burgeoning list of foot and ankle treatments by saying, “The Saorsa Swift Wart Removal System is a breakthrough that is destined to change the way podiatrists across the country treat plantar warts. The utility of microwave radiation along with its unique property of not harming human cells has been known to medicine for a long time. However, this is the first time these qualities have been harnessed to treat plantar warts. The result is a technology that you will love because it makes plantar wart treatments cleaner and safer and enables you to recover faster. We also love it as podiatrists because it comes in the form of a compact and portable machine that enables us to help many more patients than we would normally be able to. So come down to Lighthouse Foot and Ankle Center and say goodbye to your plantar wart problems for good. You can also follow us on our Facebook at to keep up with our announcements and to read what the Scarborough community is saying about us.”
