Ajay Bhatnagar, M.D., MBA, a board-certified radiation oncologist, has been named medical director for 21st Century Oncology’s cancer treatment centers in Arizona.

Dr. Bhatnagar will oversee medical operations at 21st Century Oncology’s locations in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Sun City, Sun City West and Casa Grande.

With a background in biomedical engineering, Bhatnagar has a broad range of experience in new cancer care technologies and research.

He is now one of Arizona’s most experienced physicians in delivering electronic brachytherapy for the treatment of skin cancer.

After earning his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Bhatnagar earned an MBA degree from the University of Pittsburgh Katz Graduate School of Business.
