Vascular surgeons specialise in the treatment of vascular diseases, including vascular infections, stroke, vasculitis and many more. Basically, vascular diseases occur in the arteries and veins of your body. These blood vessels are responsible for pumping blood and therefore oxygen throughout the body.

Bunions occur when the joint at the bottom of the big toe becomes misaligned and deformed. This condition causes a bony protrusion to form and the big toe to point towards the other toes. In general, bunions can be managed through diverse methods such as using toe splints, doing foot exercises and using foot orthotics. However, if you want to permanently deal with the condition, surgical intervention is the best solution.
