Treat large warts that haven’t responded to topical treatments
You might have hyfrecation or electrosurgery if you have a wart that is unable to be removed completely. It is carried out after removing the bulk of the wart by excision.
Hyfrecation or electrosurgery is carried out after removing the bulk of the wart by excision, the remaining part of the wart is burned away using an electric current. This can be quite painful, particularly if there are a number of warts, so we may need to give you a regional anaesthetic or even a general anaesthetic.
