Verruca & Wart Treatment

Verruca & Wart Treatment

Often our clients are unsure whether they are suffering from verrucae or corns as they can both look so similar.

If you too are unsure and would appreciate the certainty of having a firm diagnosis, book a verruca/wart assessment appointment so a diagnosis can be made and the various treatment options discussed with you.


Our podiatrists are all trained in a variety of verruca treatments. At the Farnham Foot Clinic we only currently offer the revolutionary SWIFT treatment.

As all our podiatrists are trained in a variety of methods for treating verruca (even though we do not offer all of them), we would be happy to discuss the merits and shortfalls of the different treatments and advise you on the best next step for you.
