Thereafter, he was awarded the Health Manpower Development Plan (HMDP) Scholarship from the Ministry of Health to pursue advanced subspecialty training in Foot and Ankle surgery.

In addition, he was awarded the AO fellowship at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus, Germany in lower limb trauma and reconstructive surgery. This further augmented his transatlantic perspective and skillset in lower limb reconstructive surgery.
His subspecialty interests are in foot and ankle, sports and reconstructive surgery. In particular, he is a strong advocate of minimally invasive or keyhole surgery. Of note, he is one of a handful of surgeons with vast experience in keyhole bunion surgery. He also has a keen interest in harnessing 3D printing technology to develop patient specific implants and guides to improve clinical outcomes in lower limb reconstruction and deformity correction surgery. Having served as a clinical collaborator and key advisor at the SGH 3D printing centre, he is at the forefront of this cutting edge technology.
