The first is a combination of electrosurgery and curettage. Electrosurgery means using tools that send a small electrical charge to the head of the wart, effectively burning off it. Curettage means cutting the wart off completely with a surgeon's knife or a specially made spoon shaped device designed for this use. Most often, both of these processes are used together, sending the wart into shock with the power and then removing it with the spoon shaped surgeon's knife. Lately, state of the art lasers have been utilized with growing popularity and enviable success rates.
