This medical practice is made up of a network of 62 offices that can be found throughout DC, MD, PA, NC, & VA. They are also foot and ankle medical facilities that treat patients in all age ranges.
Dr. Lee E. Firestone, who leads the team at the Chevy Chase, Maryland office, wanted to talk about one of the clinic’s most recent treatments, called the Saorsa wart removal system. This specialized plantar wart removal process is discussed in more detail on the clinic’s website which can be found at https://www.footandankle-usa.com/podiatrist/chevy-chase-md/.
Dr. Firestone went on to describe this type of treatment as one that is aimed at removing stubborn surface-based skin lesions, such as plantar warts. The Saorsa wart removal system uses technology that takes full advantage of low-dose microwaves to help get rid of difficult-to-remove plantar warts. He stated that these types of warts are caused by what is known as the human papillomavirus (HPV) virus. They are most associated with the 1, 2, 4, 60, and 63 types of this virus. They are very difficult to remove because plantar warts project out finger-like roots that tend to grow deep into the skin of the feet. This makes them very hard to treat using methods that emanate from the surface of the foot.
As a result, Dr. Firestone says they can attack the root cause of plantar warts instead of just attempting to make patients that suffer from this ailment more comfortable as only those patients’ symptoms are treated. This gives patients a very reasonable chance of having their plantar wart-related problems eliminated or severely lessened. When the special probed is used in the treatment of plantar warts it does so without emitting any type of smoke or plume that can be hazardous to the patient, much unlike treatments that use laser and electrocautery devices.
Using the Saorsa system to remove plantar warts is just one of the many specialized foot and ankle treatments that their vast network of clinics offers. Other treatments which can be read about on their website and Facebook page (which can be seen at https://www.facebook.com/footanklespecialistsma) include using biomechanics & orthotics to help improve foot and ankle function and attempt to minimize the pain associated with the improper functioning of these areas. They also specialize in bunion treatments, diabetic foot care, foot & ankle arthroscopic surgery, and foot & ankle cosmetic surgical services.
To the clinic’s credit, they have a 4.9 out of a possible 5-star when almost 300 reviews have been averaged together. Dr. Firestone encouraged those throughout the Mid-Atlantic region who suffer from foot and ankle problems to reach out to them by phone, email, or website contact form to get better informed about how their clinics can help them.
