A heart surgeon has made a Facebook plea for a thief to return a pair of special goggles he needs to perform life-saving operations.

Doctor Thiti Chanmayka, heart, artery and chest surgeon of Khon Kaeb-based Srinagarind Hospital, published the post on Thursday, urging anyone who has the goggles to return them.

He said that his residence at Khon Kaen University was broken into on August 6 and the thief took the goggles.

“The goggles are essential for saving the lives of patients,” the doctor said in the post.

He added that they are customised so only he can wear them.

The post has so far been shared more than 19,000 times.
