Podiatrist Announces New Warts (Planters) Removal Treatment

Dr. Fabienne Rottenberg, DPM, PC, a podiatrist based in New York, NY, is happy to announce a new and effective treatment for plantar warts and other surface based skin lesions. This is the SWIFT® microwave therapy for warts and skin lesions. Plantar warts, which are usually found on the heels or other weight-bearing parts of the feet, are usually painful because of the pressure on the feet. Just like all warts, plantar warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and below the skin, the warts can have finger-like roots, which make them challenging to treat effectively from the surface. Swift is an advanced technology that has been cleared by the FDA and has been found to be highly effective in getting rid of plantar warts.

The SWIFT® microwave therapy device delivers low dose microwave energy via a specialized probe that targets the HPV virus by stimulating the natural immune response of the body. Between three and four treatments must be provided, with a spacing of four weeks apart in order to align with the body’s natural immune cycle. Each treatment, which is called a “sock off - sock on” treatment, will only last for 5 to 10 minutes. There will be no breaking of the skin nor bandages. And there will only be limited debridement.

The pain felt is similar to the pain of a small scratch or injection, lasting for only a few seconds before immediately receding. Some patients may feel some soreness after the treatment but not strong enough to prevent normal daily activities. The pain or discomfort is due to the infected tissue temperature rapidly increasing over a two second dose of energy. The pain or discomfort will immediately stop once the energy delivery is stopped.

Dr. Fabienne Rottenberg advises patients to come for a consultation if they feel or suspect they have a plantar wart if they want it removed. There are typical symptoms to look out for, such as: the feeling of “painful pebbles” in one’s shoes; pain is felt when the sides of the wart are pressed; presence of circular flat spot on the skin with a depressed portion in the middle; warts appearing “yellowed” with a crust; presence of small black dots; lesion on one’s foot has changed color or is painful and bleeding; wart reoccurs and multiples after trying some treatments; discomfort that prevents the performance of regular activities; poor sensation on the feet; and not sure if the lesion is a wart.
