Stuart Menaker


Family physician
Medical examiner for the FAA

Dr. Stuart Menaker is a family practice physician with a special interest in caring for families that include children and adolescents and for patients with men's health concerns. He also enjoys performing minor office procedures, such as removal of skin lesions, insertion or removal of intrauterine devices, vasectomies, and joint injections to relieve inflammation as well as other types of injections.

Menaker believes in the value of taking a team approach to keeping patients healthy, with the individual patient serving as captain of the team. In addition to caring for patients at UCSF, he is a senior medical examiner for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Menaker earned his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine and completed his residency in family medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. After working for 10 years in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, he moved to California to practice at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.

For Menaker, moving to San Francisco and joining UCSF has been the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.
