He has been a practitioner in the field of thoracic surgery, with a special interest in thoracic oncology, for more than fifteen years.

Prior to starting his private practice, Dr Aneez served as the Head of Service of Thoracic Surgery in the Department of General Surgery in Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), Singapore.

Dr Aneez is a member of various thoracic surgical groups internationally. He is also the Thoracic domain board member at the Asian Society of Cardiothoracic Surgery (ASCVTS), and he is the current General Secretary of the South East Asian Society of Thoracic Surgery (SEATS).

His expertise and knowledge in minimally invasive thoracic surgery have led to numerous invitations as a speaker to conferences and workshops in the region. He also receives referrals from other hospitals in the country and other regions such as Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and the U.A.E.

Besides clinical works, Dr Aneez is passionate about teaching. Since 2010, Dr Aneez piloted a program in Advanced Thoracic Nursing Course (ATNC) at TTSH that has been running annually to train nurses from all over Asia. He is also an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
