He was one of the pioneers in advocating Minimally Invasive Hepatobiliary Surgery and Associating Liver Partition and Portal Vein Ligation for Staged Hepatectomy (ALPPS) in the territory.  He also was an expert on the living donor liver transplantation and complex HBP resections. He published more than 220 peer-reviewed articles in high impact journals including Annals of Surgery, British Journal of Surgery, Journal of Hepatology and Hepatology. Owing to his outstanding research and clinical performance, he was awarded Carlos Pellegrini Traveling Fellowship in 2015 from The American College of Surgeons.
