After completing residency training in neurological surgery at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, he went on to complete a fellowship in neurosurgical oncology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

Specializing in spine surgery and neurosurgical oncology, Dr. Vigneswaran focuses on the surgical treatment of patients using the latest neurosurgical tools and works closely with neuro-oncologists and radiation oncologists. Dr. Vigneswaran has extensive experience in performing elective spine surgeries and treating degenerative spine conditions with minimally invasive techniques.
