What is a wart (seborrhoeic keratosis)?

A wart or seborrhoeic keratosis is a small, non-cancerous growth on the skin caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Warts are typically rough to the touch and can appear as small, raised bumps or larger clusters. They can occur on various body parts, including hands, feet, face, and genitals. Warts are contagious and can spread through direct skin-to-skin contact or contact with surfaces that have been in contact with a wart. While warts are usually harmless, they can be bothersome or unsightly, prompting some individuals to seek removal for cosmetic or comfort reasons.

What is Electrocautery?

Electrocautery for wart removal is a procedure that employs an electric current to burn and remove warts, using a specialised device to heat and destroy the unwanted tissue effectively.

How are the warts removed?

We remove warts by electrocautery or by performing a surgical removal with a surgical incision for larger lesions.

How do you assess the suitability for treatment? 

We assess suitability through online and face-to-face consultations, carefully examining the lesion and medical history.

Is the procedure painful? 

There is some pain with the local anaesthetic injection used to numb the area, ensuring minimal pain or discomfort during the procedure.
