Wart removal surgery
Surgery to remove wart is usually quick and effective. But there are various types of surgeries that can be performed to remove wart. No single surgical method is more effective than another in
removing warts. The choice of surgery depends upon the type, location, and size of wart. The most common types of surgical treatment for wart removal include:
Electrosurgery and curettage: This is a two-step surgery in which electrosurgery is done to burn the wart with an electrical current, followed by curettage to cut off the wart with a sharp knife or a small, spoon-shaped tool. Almost always these procedures are performed together.
Laser surgery: Laser surgery burns off the wart with an intense beam of light.
