In brief: Several treatments.

You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: i've seen them do more harm than good.
Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding.

In brief: Yes!

Plantar warts and other warts can be treated with topical agents that slowly dissolve the wart.
Warts can also be frozen. Surgery is a last resort. Some of these treatments are also available over the counter at the drug store! ask your pharmacist for help.
