At the Prostate Cancer Institute of Arizona, cancer treatment specialist Ajay Bhatnagar, MD, provides high-quality prostate cancer care to men in Chandler, Arizona, and throughout Maricopa County.
Dr. Bhatnagar was born in London but spent most of his childhood in Pennsylvania. He earned his undergraduate degree in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, graduating magna cum laude.
Dr. Bhatnagar obtained his medical degree and master’s degree in business administration (MBA) from the University of Pittsburgh. Before entering private practice, he completed postgraduate medical training in radiation oncology.
Dr. Bhatnagar brings more than 20 years of experience to the Prostate Cancer Institute of Arizona –– the only practice in the state that exclusively focuses on low-dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy. This treatment for men with localized prostate cancer (cancer that hasn’t spread beyond the prostate) is one of the most effective treatments when considering cure rates, side effects, and treatment duration.
Men from all over the Valley of the Sun visit Dr. Bhatnagar to receive treatment for prostate cancer with Low Dose Rate (LDR) brachytherapy, including focal brachytherapy and rectal spacing (a procedure that protects the rectum and surrounding tissues from radiation).
Dr. Bhatnagar uses the latest technology, including the Theraseed® Pd-103 radioactive seed offered by Becton Dickinson and Theragenics, Cs-131 radioactive seed offered by Perspective Therapuetics, and rectal spacing with Barrigel®, the only rectal spacer that allows sculpting. Dr. Bhatnagar also uses real-time treatment planning during his brachytherapy cases which results in the most precise and accurate procedure.
When he isn’t meeting with patients, developing treatment plans, or completing surgery, Dr. Bhatnagar enjoys enhancing his professional skills. He serves on the board of the Arizona Medical Association, is a consultant to the Arizona Medical Board, and is a member of the American Brachytherapy Society.
Dr. Bhatnagar regularly collaborates with urologists throughout the Phoenix metroplex. He welcomes any man with prostate cancer to the Prostate Cancer Institute of Arizona.
