I am a retired RN. I was referred to Dr Vigneswaran for surgery. The surgery was done on a Wednesday and I went home on a Friday. I have worked with all kinds of doctors over 30 years he is the best thoracic guy around. I would referred anyone and everyone who needed lung surgery. My progress has been out standing under his care.
