After his services at the internationally proclaimed AIIMS, New Delhi, he founded SAAOL Heart Center in 1995, a new kind of heart Center where no operations will be done and heart patients will get treatment by medicines, lifestyle and non-invasive treatments.

The inception of this kind of treatment goes back to 1986 when Dr. Chhajer while working at Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, as a Junior Resident in Cardiology, had an immediate experience with one patient with an unhealthy lifestyle, his sudden death, made him realize that the treatment with medicine is not sufficient if the lifestyle was counter-productive. This created a new concept – treat heart patients by educating them and changing their lifestyles. Medicines should be the second line of treatment.
During the next 8 years, he carried out research on this new concept at King George’s Medical College, Lucknow for his MD followed by his tenure as an Assistant Professor at AIIMS, New Delhi.

His unique way of treating heart disease without intense surgeries like Bypass Surgery or Angioplasty made SAAOL centers special and in demand. His concept popularized across the country and abroad, he also authored about 100 books in the field of preventive health and heart disease education. His book on “Reversing Heart Disease” has been translated into 10 Indian languages.
