He was awarded Outstanding Clinical Teacher in 2007 and appointed Visiting Professor for Laparoscopy at the University of Philippines in 2009.

He is the first gynaecologist in Singapore to perform Single Incision Laparoscopy for Hysterectomy and Myomectomy.

Apart from laparoscopy, he is considered a key opinion leader in Fibroid management, Endometriosis treatment, and medical treatment for Ectopic Pregnancy. He is frequently invited to lecture on these topics, both locally and overseas. As a result, he is often sought for a second or even third opinion on complex gynaecological issues. His current focuses on giving his best to help women with their gynaecological health, which may involve the need for complex gynaecological surgery.
