Plantar Warts – Plantar warts are benign (noncancerous) growths that occur on the sole (plantar surface), heel, or ball of the foot – the wart is made up of a thick fibrous tissue forming a dense mass under the particular area of the foot. Due to the sensitive nature of the area anaesthetic is injected into the area which completely numbs the area so a quick and proper removal of the wart is accomplished. Mosaic warts establish satellite plantar warts (a wart around the original wart) and these just get bigger and bigger and eventually coalesce to form a single lesion which can be quite large in size. Pressure from standing and walking often causes them to grow into deep layers of the skin which pushes on the soft surrounding tissues of the foot causing considerable pain and discomfort.
Ultra Pulse CO2 laser is the most effective treatment as it removes both the head and the root of the plantar wart completely – never to grow again.


Most patients tend to ignore the existence of a single plantar wart, they don’t realize that they can spread and literally infect the whole bottom of the foot hence the name plantar warts.
Other plantar warts cause absolutely no pain whatsoever unfortunately this type of plantar wart is often a mosaic wart. We have found that freezing with liquid nitrogen is a very in efficient way to treat plantar warts, it is also painful to the patient and often requires multiple treatments (which often don’t work).
These can be the worst wart to have as they spread slowly but surely and because of the lack of pain most patients never bother to have them checked out. We have been dealing with plantar warts for over twenty years and now treat most of them with laser, we find that this causes minimal pain to the patient and results in a very high success rate in resolving plantar warts.


Some people keep their wart covered with duct tape or adhesive tape to try to make it go away.
If your wart is painful or does not go away, you may need to receive treatments from our doctor.
