In addition, Dr Sanguan has also engaged in numerous scientific and lecture activities. He also works tirelessly to mentor younger surgeons and is happy to pass on his knowledge and experience.

Dr Sanguan has been a member of Rotary for many years, and in 2014 he was District Governor. He lives in Phuket with his family and often hosts exchange students in his home.
