Verrucae are common skin lesions seen mainly in younger patients. They often are seen on the plantar surface of the foot. Many different types of treatments have been used over the years, with varying levels of success. The authors present a thorough review of previous treatments and present a new and effective method of surgical excision using radio wave technique. The success of this treatment is high, and the postsurgical pain and complication level is minimal.
