After his first tour with the U.S. Navy, Dr. Menard earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Georgia. He went on to complete his internship and residency in Anesthesiology at the Medical College of Georgia, and returned to the Navy to finish the remainder of his Naval career at the Orlando Naval Hospital as Chief of Anesthesia. He holds board certifications by several different Boards and has been recently recertified by the American Board of Anesthesiology Subspecialty in Pain Medicine.

Dr. Menard has been in the medical field since 1970 when he became a Hospital Corpsman in the Navy where he worked in hospitals, ships and with the US Marine Corp for two years during the Viet Nam conflict. During his residency in Anesthesiology he developed a deep passion for treating pain patients, taking extra training in treating pain long before it became fashionable. After completing his residency in 1985, he returned to the Navy as an Anesthesiologist and he even started a pain clinic at the Naval Hospital before most areas even heard of pain clinics.

Dr. Menard has held a faculty position in the Anesthesiology Department at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center since 1995. Dr. Menard is actively involved in pain research and has been involved in multiple research studies, including spinal cord stimulator research and drug trials. He is a Faculty Instructor for St. Jude Medical, teaching other pain physicians spinal cord stimulation implantation techniques. His years of medical experience and expertise in the practice of pain management, make him one of few physicians in the region with similar credentials.
