Hayden Ansinelli, MD, MSc is a radiation oncologist at Arizona Oncology’s Orange Grove location. He attended Miami University in Oxford, OH where he earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and health followed by a master’s degree in exercise and health science. He then went on to complete medical school at Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine in Huntington, WV before completing a transitional year residency at the University of Central Florida/HCA Healthcare Consortium in Ocala, FL. He then completed his residency in radiation oncology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson, AZ. Passionate about brachytherapy, he is one of the first residents to complete the American Brachytherapy Society’s 300-in-10 Fellowship in Houston, TX.

Dr. Ansinelli treats a variety of malignancies, with a focus on genitourinary and head and neck cancers. He specializes in gynecologic and prostate brachytherapy.

While attending medical school, Dr. Ansinelli was recognized as the head of the medical student tutoring program and also worked as a research assistant at the McKown Translational Genomic Research Institute. His research has been published in numerous journals, including Advances in Radiation Oncology, the European Journal of Applied Physiology, and the Journal of Contemporary Brachytherapy. He most recently presented his work at the American Brachytherapy Society Meetings in 2022 and 2023. He also continues to be involved in resident and medical student education, mentoring numerous local students and resident physicians.

In 2023, Dr. Ansinelli became the first oncologist to ever be chosen for the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious, annual “Tucson 40 Under 40” award in recognition of his dedication to patient advocacy and community service in Tucson.


Always interested in pursuing a career in science, it wasn’t until Dr. Ansinelli had several family members affected by cancer that he decided to focus on a career in oncology. His personal experiences and strong local ties have inspired him to make as much of a positive impact as possible in the Tucson community.

He prioritizes relentless patient advocacy and clear communication—he strongly believes healthcare should center on the patient’s goals and needs. Dr. Ansinelli and his team strive to give unrivaled support along each step of the way while always remaining accessible for easy communication. He is committed to continue lifelong learning as a physician to optimize outcomes for his patients.
