About Dr. Mehta

Dr. Akanksha Mehta is a Senior Associate and Health Services Scholar in the Department of Urology at Emory University School of Medicine.

Dr. Mehta graduated magna cum laude from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, with double Bachelor degrees; Science (Biology) and International Relations. Dr. Mehta attended medical school at Alpert Medical School at Brown University in Providence, RI, where she also did her General Surgery internship and Urology residency. She then completed a fellowship in Male Infertility and Microsurgery at Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York, NY, before joining Emory Urology in 2013.

Dr. Mehta’s clinical and research interests lie in the area of male reproductive medicine, sexual medicine, and microsurgery. She is a member of the American Urologic Association, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, and the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction. In addition to her clinical responsibilities at Emory, Dr. Mehta is pursuing a Master’s of Science in Clinical Research at the Rollins School of Public Health. To this end, she will also be conducting epidemiological research through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the impact of male factor infertility on clinical outcomes following the use of assisted reproductive technologies. 

Dr. Mehta is closely involved in teaching and mentoring medical students and urology residents. She has authored several book chapters and peer-reviewed publications in Urology, and has presented at both regional and national meetings.

Outside of Urology, Dr. Mehta maintains a keen interest in International Health; she has been involved in providing clinical care in Cambodia and Kenya, and has more recently completed a medical mission in Pediatric Urology to Bangladesh.
