Following this, Dr. Arasu was also given the opportunity to work with internationally renowned fertility specialists, Mr. Tim Child and Mr. Enda McVeigh who led Oxford Fertility Unit in the University of Oxford.

Upon returning to Malaysia, Dr. Arasu decided to end his service in the government sector wherein he held the post as a senior lecturer in the University of Malaya. He then took on the role as a Medical Director of Fertility Associates Malaysia, a sister company of Fertility Associates New Zealand, from 2014-2019. FA Malaysia was Dr. Arasu’s maiden project and was involved in every step of the way.

Dr. Arasu’s aim is to offer a full range top notch intern of scientific input as well as making IVF treatment accessible to lower socioeconomic subgroups while maintaining a pregnancy rate above 50% and up to 78% with PGT.
