Verruca Treatment

Treatment varies depending on various factors, eg type, size, number, location, age of patient etc. At Orrell Chiropody Practice we offer three types of treatment:

  • Cryotherapy – use of liquid nitrogen (-196degrees centigrade) in a spray or probe application.
  • Caustic therapy - these are much stronger and effective than are available to you at the pharmacy. (Cryo and caustic therapies are often used in the same treatment plan and usually take 3 treatments/appointments)
  • Electrosurgery - performed under a local anaesthetic using the latest technology which can remove verrucae in one treatment.

The use of our treadmill highlights any gait abnormalities making an accurate diagnosis possible.
