Background: Granuloma pyogenicum (GP) is a common vascular lesion which often bleeds easily during most of the treatment modalities. A number of pyogenic granulomas often recur after such treatment. Objective: The aim of this study was to establish a surgical procedure which is easy to operate, less invasive, minimal bleeding at the operation site and without any recurrence of the lesion. Methods: Twenty-three patients (15males, and 8females) suffering from granuloma pyogenicum at different stages (ulcerated, reepithelialized and resolving) and at various sites of the body constituted the sample population. In all the patients, crushing of the base of the lesions followed by shave excision and electrodesiccation of the shaved base were carried out. The patients were followed up for six months to observe recurrence, scar formation and any other complications. Results: Bleeding was practically nil during the surgical procedure in all the cases. There was no recurrence and cosmetic outcome was excellent. No complications were encountered. Conclusion: The technique is not only an alternative modality but can also be the treatment of choice in all stages of granuloma pyogenicum
