She received her medical degree from the University of Maryland School of  Medicine and completed her residency in urologic surgery at Duke University Hospital before completing her fellowship in male infertility and microsurgery.

Dr. Mendez has published numerous articles, book chapters and given presentations across the nation at conferences and she was awarded the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction
