About Prostate Cancer Institute of Arizona

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 at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. In 2023, Dr. Bhatnagar was selected as an honored member of the Nationwide Registries Top Doctors of America Honors Editon.

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.

Patient & Physician Success Stories
"I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Bhatnagar as my radiation oncologist who performed my prostate seed implant. He was very thorough in explaining the treatment to me which made me feel very comfortable with him. The procedure was fairly simple for me.
 
I went to the hospital in the morning and went to sleep, and then I woke up with my prostate cancer treatment completed. Then I went home a few hours later the same day. I am very pleased with the outcomes thus far. As a physician and as a patient, I would highly recommend Dr. Bhatnagar for your cancer treatment."
Patient - Dr. Ib M
"It has been a pleasure to work with Dr. Bhatnagar for the past 15 years performing LDR prostate brachytherapy together. He is a very skilled brachytherapist with extensive experience translating to excellent clinical results for our patients. The patients really enjoy the multi-disciplinary team approach we are able to provide for them."
Dr. Biren Patel, Arizona Advanced Urology
I have never had a Doctor that I felt so comfortable with. Anytime I had a question or felt concerned about a possible issue about my procedure, before or after. It just took one call to express my issue or question & I always had an answer within the same day. Dr. Bhatnagar, & his staff are outstanding. I was impressed with the complete staff & the attention they gave me. If you need anything in the area of Dr. Bhatnagar profession or his staff. He's the one to call. Don't shy away! God Bless him & his staff.

Dear Dr. B,
We had full confidence in you even before meeting. Dr. Patel sent us to you and we just knew you would and are the best. Where do we begin to express in this note our appreciation and gratitude in providing your medical and professional skills and talents in giving us peace of mind for Luis and me to have more years ahead of us than not. Not only was the surgery successful but personally giving me the news gave me peace relief and my fears were finally fading away, Thank you!
Luis has had no recovery side-effects and that has just added to our appreciation to you and Dr. Patel. After meeting you the first time we were so excited to get the surgery done and it was because we believed in you!
