Electrocauterization is the procedure when a direct or alternating current is sent by a thermal resistant metal wire electrode to generate heat. Electrocauterization is also known as thermal cautery treatment. The electrocauterization treatment is advised by doctors for minor surgical methods e.g. dermatology of the skin, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, and urology. The current used during the procedure of electrocauterization does not pass through the patient that makes it safe and secure to treat patients with implanted electrical devices such as cardiac pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators, and deep-brain stimulators. This treatment is done by a trained medical specialist in his or her clinic or hospital and does not require hospitalisation. Electrocautery surgery is generally done by a gastrointestinal specialist, a local or general anaesthetic. A numbing injection or a medicine for local anaesthesia is generally used for controlling pain. The current is used to destroy or seal the tissue wild mild electric current for the treatment. The current does not pass through and only the heated rod touches the affected skin that requires treatment. The recovery of the treated area is different from each individual as it is based on the size and quality of tissue removed from the area. The area will heal completely after a period of two or four weeks and it may take more depending upon the area. Electrocauterization treatment is advised by doctors worldwide majorly for cosmetic reasons as it is safe and requires minimum recovery time.
