Advanced Foot and Ankle Centers of Illinois, a podiatry practice based in Hoffman Estates, IL, has recently acquired a Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine that they will be using for plantar warts treatment. When patients visit their office, the podiatrist will assess the wart and then develop a proper treatment plan. The Swift machine works by destroying the virus on the inside, instead of treating the warts externally. The way it works is that it delivers low dose microwaves to the target area to heat it up quickly and this stimulates the body’s immune response to destroy the virus. This speeds up the process substantially because under the typical circumstances, it will take years for the immune system to fight the warts, especially because of their location. More about the podiatry practice can be gleaned from their Facebook page at

Advanced Foot and Ankle Centers of Illinois has several offices in various locations in Illinois aside from the main offices in Hoffman Estates, and these are in: Orlando Park, Waukegan, Joliet, Aurora, Palatine, and Chicago. They also have offices in Kenosha, Wisconsin. They provide the Swift plantar warts treatment at Hoffman Estates, Kenosha, and Joliet offices and they want to point out that it will usually require 1 to 4 treatment sessions. The microwaves are applied for a duration of two to three seconds per wart. And they also want to point out that the treatment is generally not painful, although it might be mildly uncomfortable during the microwave emission. And many patients have reported that they had seen a significant reduction in their plantar warts after just one session.

Patients with plantar warts are eager to get rid of them because they suffer from the pain throughout the day as the pressure gets exerted on the soles of the feet as they do their daily routine, such as walking running, and more. With such an inconvenience, they will certainly be glad to get treated using the Swift microwave therapy machine.

It is also important to note that the Swift machine provides cleaner wart treatments because it doesn’t produce any smoke or plumes and it will not require the use of bandages and dressings, and neither will it require an anaesthetic. While electrocautery and laser therapy equipment produce a plume of smoke that can be dangerous for the patient and the clinician providing the treatment, the Swift microwave therapy doesn’t produce any smoke or smell, providing a cleaner and safer treatment alternative.

The Saorsa Swift microwave machine has also been designed to be precise. It is equipped with an applicator that the clinician uses to accurately direct the microwaves to where they are needed. In addition, the microwaves have been designed to travel in straight lines to the target area and it has been ensured that they don’t have lateral spread that is typically observed in cryotherapy. Furthermore, the Swift device has been designed to make sure that the thermal energy doesn’t go deeper 6.5mm in the skin. Usually, the thermal energy will only need to reach a depth of 3.5 to 4mm in the skin with clinician being able to set the treatment parameters on the generator.

Advanced Foot and Ankle Centers of Illinois has a team of podiatrists including: Dr. Joel Anderson; Dr. Breck Tiernan; Dr. Dana Wisby; Dr. Daniel Hare; and Dr. Zain Rizvi. They are ready to treat patients who are suffering from any type of injury or feel any pain or mobility restriction in their feet or ankles. And they will always strive to get the proper diagnosis and then develop a customized treatment plan that will be most suitable to the patient’s condition, lifestyle, and activity goals.
