Plantar warts are common warts that are found on the bottom of the feet. It is estimated that most people will experience a wart at some point throughout their lives.


The new Swift microwave unit is the only device of its kind that uses microwave energy delivered through a special probe to precisely and effectively treat plantar warts.


Microwave energy can rapidly heat up the wart tissue to create localized cell destruction in the underlying tissues where the wart exists. This stimulates the body’s own immune system to help resolve the wart and reduce the risk of the wart recurring. The treatments last only a few seconds and are spaced 4 weeks apart. There is no need to attend the clinic weekly and there are no messy creams to apply at home, making the treatment very convenient for the patient


The Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic would like to raise awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment of warts and other foot problems. The staff advises people of all ages to have your feet checked regularly.P
