N.J. Surgeon's License Suspended After He Removes Wrong Lung

The State Board of Medical Examiners found Dr. Santusht Perera moved a portion of the patient's right lung when he should have been removing a tumor in the left lung, the state Attorney General's Office said Wednesday.

Perera, according to the board, then told the patient that the right lung contained a life-threatening tumor, though there was no such growth. He also altered the patient's records to show he intended to operate on the right lung.

Now this is humanity at it's worst. He essentially doomed this patient to die and then covered up his tracks. I can't believe that his license is only being suspended for 2 years.

This is a person that's supposed to be saving lives, not taking them and covering them up. I believe that because he covered it up there should've been criminal charges filed, or at the very least a permament suspension of his license.

Paging Doctor Nick Riviera!

Unbelievable, makes me almost want to stop smoking.
At least the patient didn't go in for an orchiopexy.
