About Dr. Mendonca
Philosophy of care
I believe you should be treated equally and like my own family member. Each patient is unique – there are medical concerns but also individual social circumstances. To every problem, there are many solutions. My philosophy of care is to listen and help you find a treatment best suited to your needs and lifestyle.
Why I entered medicine
Urology, unlike any other surgical specialty, has many treatment tools. Medication alone may fix many problems, but if surgery is necessary, I would be able to offer patients open, endoscopic, laparoscopic, robotic or microscopic surgery. As an expert in reconstructive urology, I have seen many patients who had lost function from aging, prior failed surgeries or side effects from cancer treatments. I find it rewarding to help them return to a more typical way of life.
As a recent transplant from New York City, I look forward to getting involved with the Lehigh Valley community.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and watching our baby girl grow. We look forward to exploring the outdoors in the Lehigh Valley.
