His work in Taiwan is very rewarding and he has a lot of patients who travelled to Taiwan from Myanmar to seek treatment from him. After doing a lot of surgeries for patients who have to travel a long way from Myanmar he decided that the best way for him to treat these patients is by going back to Myanmar. Myanmar is a country that have a lot of excellent doctors but there are not enough specialists and by returning he hope to contribute his knowledge and experience in taking care of people who may need it.
