cutterage for curettage

“Cutterage” with the idea of cutting, rather than curettage from curette, a surgical instrument for scraping.
Bing gets 8,550 results for “cutterage.”

Examples:
“Dermatologists have said that they are benign and that the only thing one can do is to freeze them off or use cutterage (cutting them off) but this includes a painful healing process.”

“Cutterage, which uses an electric needle to “cut away” the wart, is often used when there are several warts in a localized area.”

Also see the usage “dialation and cutterage” for “dilation and curettage.
Perhaps “dialation” instead of dilation with the idea of a dial being round.

“another method used in the U.S. is dialation and cutterage method, also used in the first three months of the child’s development. this methos involves a curette (hook-shaped knife) scraping out the womb, and then cutting the baby’s body into small pieces…”
