Podiatrist in Colorado Springs CO Gets New Saorsa Warts Removal System for Plantar Wart Treatment
Cheyenne Foot & Ankle, Inc., a podiatric clinic in Colorado Springs, CO, wants everyone to know that they have a new Saorsa Swift Warts Removal Device that they can now use for providing treatment for stubborn surface based skin lesions, such as plantar warts. The podiatric care clinic is operated by board-certified Dr. Jennifer Yull, DPM, who has been providing foot and ankle care to residents of Colorado Springs and surrounding areas since 1995. Dr. Jennifer Yull says, “Our goal is always to provide the highest quality foot and ankle care to our patients and our community in the most cost-effective manner. No one should be shut out from getting the care they need.” More about the podiatric clinic can be gleaned by visiting their Facebook page at https://web.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100066634216122.
Like all warts, plantar warts are due to the human papillomavirus (HPV) virus, particularly types 1, 2, 4, 60, and 63. Plantar warts are typically difficult to treat because underneath the skin, they have finger-like roots deep inside the skin and grow, making them very hard to treat effectively from the surface. The Swift device is an advanced, FDA cleared technology that has proven to be highly effective in the removal of plantar warts. It delivers low dose microwave energy via a specialized probe that targets and effectively treats the underlying HPV virus by activating a natural immune response in the body. This addresses the root cause of the plantar wart and not just the symptom.
The Swift Microwave Wart Therapy machine has been observed to be effective for the removal of plantar warts. This advanced microwave therapy machine generates microwave energy that is directed to the infected tissue using an applicator in order to quickly elevate tissue temperature. The purpose for this is to stimulate the patient’s natural immune response against the HPV virus that causes the skin lesions or warts. Plantar warts are usually found on the soles on the feet and those who have them would naturally want to have them removed because they are quite painful because the pressure exerted on the feet causes a lot of pain and discomfort.

The Swift protocol is typically made up of 3 to 4 treatments that are spaced four weeks apart to ensure that the treatment is aligned with the natural immune cycle of the body. Each treatment session is quick and typically lasts for 5 to 10 minutes, and no bandages are needed because there is no breaking of the skin and there is minimal debridement. No home treatment is required in between sessions. And patients would be able to return to their normal activities right after each session. Furthermore, it has been observed that the Swift treatment has a substantially higher efficacy when compared to other treatment methods because it takes advantage of the patient’s own immune system.
It should be noted that while the pain during treatment is variable and depends on the patient and the lesion, most patients usually experience some level of discomfort as the infected tissue temperatures are rapidly increased for about two seconds. However, the pain immediately subsides after the energy delivery is stopped and there is very limited post procedural pain.
Dr. Jennifer Yull, DPM, obtained her doctorate in podiatric medicine (DPM) from the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in 1993. Later on, she was able to complete her podiatric and surgical residency at Sacred Heart Hospital in Chicago. She is board-certified in foot surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. She is also an active staff member of both the UCHealth Memorial Health System and Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, and as such has complete surgical privileges at their associated surgery centers and hospitals.
