An electrosurgical generator has output terminals for connection to active and return electrodes respectively of an electrosurgical instrument and, connected to the output terminals via at least one isolation capacitor, a radio frequency (r.f.) source which may be pulsed by a pulsing circuit. To permit tissue removal at a high rate, the source and the pulsing circuit are arranged so as to generate a pulsed r.f. output signal having a peak-to-peak voltage of at least 1250V, a mark-to-space ratio not more than 1:1, and a pulse length not more than 100 &mgr;s.
