If you’re looking for state-of-the-art treatment for wart removal, you’re in the right place! Our team at Dallas Podiatry Works is excited to offer SWIFT® microwave therapy for wart removal in Dallas, TX. SWIFT® is a brand new, highly effective treatment that addresses the underlying cause of warts and other surface-based skin lesions for long-lasting relief.
Plantar warts are small lesions that usually appear on the heels or other weight-bearing areas of your feet. Plantar warts are caused by a virus (HPV). The virus enters your body through tiny cuts, breaks, or weak spots on the bottom of your feet.
While plantar warts aren’t a serious health concern, they can become painful and tend to spread and multiply on the feet. Signs of plantar warts include a small, fleshy, rough lesion on the bottom of your foot, usually the base of the toes, forefoot, or the heel. Upon close examination, you may see pinpoint dots in the lesion. Plantar warts may also be painful when pinched from side to side.
Swift® is a cutting-edge, FDA-cleared technology that is proven highly effective in the removal of plantar warts. It delivers low-dose microwave energy through a specialized probe to target and treat the underlying HPV virus by stimulating a natural immune response in the body. The technology doesn’t just treat the symptoms; it also addresses the root cause.
SWIFT® protocol involves between 3 and 4 treatments, spaced four weeks apart. These treatments align with the body’s natural immune cycle and last only 5-10 minutes — what we call a “sock off, sock on” treatment: limited debridement, no breaking of the skin, and no bandages. No at-home treatment is required between treatments, and patients can resume daily activities immediately post-treatment.
While pain varies between patients and is lesion-specific, most patients typically feel some level of discomfort as infected tissue temperatures are rapidly elevated over a two-second dose of energy. However, the pain immediately subsides following the cessation of energy delivery, and there is little post-procedural pain. Some patients even report an immediate reduction in pain levels. All patients can continue with day-to-day activities immediately following treatment.
As SWIFT® harnesses the power of the patient’s immune system to target the root cause of the wart (HPV), efficacy is significantly higher compared to other treatment methods. Contact our office to learn more about the effectiveness of SWIFT®.
It’s essential to contact us if you suspect that you have a plantar wart and are seeking removal. The longer you wait to seek treatment, the more likely the wart is to persist. Here are some common symptoms to look out for:
The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
