Plantar Warts

Plantar Warts

Plantar warts are noncancerous growths that typically appear on the sole, heel, or ball of the foot. They are usually identified by their rough, spongy texture, and often display a coloration of gray, brown, or yellow, with small dark spots—these are tiny blood vessels that supply the wart.

The human papilloma virus (HPV) is responsible for the development of plantar warts. It infiltrates the body through the skin on the bottom of the feet, typically through cuts or breaks. The virus is commonly found on contaminated surfaces, such as the tiled floors of public locker rooms, showers, and swimming pool areas.

Certain individuals are more susceptible to the HPV virus that leads to plantar warts. Risk factors include:

– Repeated exposure to HPV, such as walking barefoot in shared public spaces like locker rooms and common areas.
– Weakened immune system.

In some cases, the virus can be transmitted from other parts of the body to the feet, a phenomenon known as remote location seeding.

Upon initial diagnosis, individuals often experience a sensation of a “lump” on the bottom of the foot when standing, akin to having a stone in their shoe. Without proper treatment, plantar warts can grow to up to 1 inch in circumference and may form clusters, known as mosaic warts. In severe cases, they can lead to alterations in gait or posture, resulting in leg or back pain.

If you’re dealing with plantar warts, it’s crucial to consult your podiatrist for effective treatment options tailored to your specific situation.

Went to the foot and ankle center in Dave because my ankle had been sore for four or five days. After examination Doctor D found that I had a torn ligament by doing a sonogram. I was treated for it and was released in a short most convenient amount of time. I will recommend friends to visit this office for foot and ankle problems.

Dr. D is amazing - she is incredibly thorough, has impressive knowledge, and describes everything in detail. She took the time to go over multiple issues and was very compassionate in her care plan while remaining honest and letting me know what to expect from long-term diagnoses.

I visited this office as a second opinion after not getting any results or satisfaction with a previous podiatrist. Dr. Dabakaroff (Lauren) did an amazing job with her methodical approach to diagnose the issue accurately and provide great … More

From my first phone call with Vicky (at the desk), to meeting Dr. Dabakaroff and Isabella, my experience was wonderful. Dr. D. listened to my plantar fasciitis history; they took x-rays and an ultrasound immediately—right there in the office, which makes all the difference. Dr. D. gave me shots for pain for immediate relief, but is also working with me to stop the pain cycle, including a follow up visit, stretches and shoe suggestions. I’m excited to have found a wonderful podiatrist.

Honestly one of the best doctors I have ever met. I had an infected ingrown toenail and I was extremely nervous about getting it remove. I was able to be seen the same day. Staff were super sweet and reassuring. Dr.Wolansky made me feel so comfortable and walked me through the process as he was doing it. I honestly feel like more doctors like him are needed in the medical field. His bedside manner is impeccable and he truly loves what he does and cares for his patients. My procedure was done with state of the art technology which made me feel even more comfortable. I totally recommend 1000%. You won’t be disappointed!

The staff is amazing, starting with the receptionist. She is always so accommodating with scheduling. She is warm and welcoming and sets a great atmosphere for this office. I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Lauren and she was very thorough and explained in detail the problems I had been having for years with my feet. Before Dr. Lauren, I went to a couple of doctors with no success. Dr. Lauren is the best at what she does, hands down. She treated me with respect and I walked out their office pain free. From now on, this is my go to office for my feet because this is their specialty. Thank you Dr. Lauren. This is Marlanda Pittman

Dr. Wolansky is outstanding. He takes the time to explain procedures and supports his patient throughout their treatments. His office staff are exceptional. Vickie is amazing, and Chris held my hand through a procedure. Kind and personable people, not many physician offices like this still exist. I would give him 6 stars!
