Arthur Tjandra, the founder of Elixir de Vie, is double (American) board-certified in both Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, and Aesthetic Medicine, as well as a fellow of the International College of Surgeons.

After completing undergraduate medical studies at the University of North Sumatra (Indonesia), University of Sydney (Australia) and University of Wales, College of Medicine (UK), Arthur Tjandra embarked on post-graduate training by going through internal medicine residency at the Singapore General Hospital, training in various subspecialties in medicine, upon which his anti-aging medicine practice is built. Upon passing American board certification examinations in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, as well as Aesthetic Medicine, he gained admission to a 2-year resident fellowship program in facial and body cosmetic surgery at the Institute of Plastic Surgery Singapore (Tan Tock Seng Hospital) under the mentorship of Professor Fong Poh Him, a world-renowned plastic surgeon and fellowship director of the Institute of Plastic Surgery Singapore (IPSS), as well as at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. It was then followed by another 2 years of visiting fellowship attachment at IPSS and The Heal Medical Group. In recognition of his vast experience and training, the International College of Surgeons unanimously elected Arthur Tjandra as a Fellow in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He is probably the ONLY medical doctor in the world who has trained in internal medicine, anti-aging medicine, sports medicine and cosmetic surgery!

Arthur Tjandra is a keen sports enthusiast. Besides sports medicine, Arthur Tjandra is also knowledgeable in sports nutrition. He has been credentialed by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (USA) as a Performance Enhancement SpecialistCorrective Exercise Specialist, as well as a Certified Sports Nutritionist.

Having been overweight at one point of time, Arthur Tjandra transformed his own body in 2004, experimenting with various methods of diets and since then has worked with many others to help them achieve the same. Utilizing the knowledge he obtained while training to be a Performance Enhancement Specialist and Sports Nutritionist, he specializes in working with those who suffer from obesity as well as underweight clients who wish to pack on a few more pounds of lean body mass. He also devises various signature anti-aging exercise programs, and has helped many elderly clients to regain their youth and vitality. He proves that it is possible to halt and even reverse the aging process by a combination of healthy diet, exercise, dietary and nutritional supplements, as well as hormone replacement therapy. Arthur Tjandra could hardly run 100 m without stopping prior to 2004. Currently, he competes regularly in duathlons, triathlons, half-marathons and marathons.

Arthur Tjandra has special interest in the field of aging and aging-related illnesses. He believes in prevention and early intervention. Having worked in almost all medical sub-specialties (internal medicine, renal medicine, cardiology, gastroenterology, medical oncology, hematology, psychiatry, neurology, respiratory and critical care medicine, endocrinology, emergency medicine, geriatric medicine and rehabilitation medicine), he believes in a holistic approach in the management of his patients in the practice of anti-aging medicine. He applies what is often a complex combination of medical specialties — endocrinology, neurology, cardiology, nutrition, exercise science, psychiatry, sexuality, life changing behavior techniques, spirituality — and others depending on each individual patient’s needs and interests.

During his stints in three intensive care units (cardiac, medical and neurology) and caring for the critically ill, Arthur Tjandra observed numerous unnecessary deaths and diseases as a result of unhealthy “modern” lifestyle. Arthur Tjandra also observed that a lot of focus has been placed on the treatment of diseases but little has been done to educate the public on preventive medicine. He decided, thus, to set up a free information portal for the public, ANTI-AGEING.SG, which he funded himself.

Arthur Tjandra has handpicked a select group of renowned medical professionals who are experienced in the management of ageing-related diseases as well as experts in their respective sub-specialties, to contribute review articles to ANTI-AGEING.SG.
