Antonio J. Webb, MD

Orthopedic Spine Surgeon located on Huebner Road in San Antonio, TX

About Dr. Webb

Antonio J. Webb, MD, is an orthopedic surgeon fellowship-trained in spine surgery specializing in medical conditions related to the spine, including degenerative, deformity, trauma, cervical/lumbar arthroplasty, and minimally invasive spine surgery. Dr. Webb has resided in San Antonio, Texas, for the past 19 years and welcomes patients to South Texas Spinal Clinic who struggle with spine pain. 

After growing up in Shreveport, Louisiana, Dr. Webb joined the United States Air Force at age 17. He spent eight years as a medic and LVN in the military, including a tour north of Baghdad, Iraq, in 2005 to a forward operating base dubbed “Mortarville” for the frequency of mortar attacks it endured. His unit treated just over 800 patients and survived over 100 enemy mortar attacks during their deployment, while also earning several medals of distinction. 

While on Active Duty Air Force, Dr. Webb attended night school and took internet courses whenever and wherever he could to complete his undergraduate pre-medical degree. His military obligations forced him to attend four different colleges, finally graduating from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) after a long and challenging seven years. Dr. Webb considers San Antonio his home after spending his entire military career at Lackland Air Force Base.   

Following his military stint, Dr. Webb was accepted to the Georgetown Experimental Medical (GEMS) program in 2009 on his third time applying and matriculated soon after into Georgetown University School of Medicine, graduating in 2014. During his last year of medical school, he completed a month-long international surgery rotation in Liberia, West Africa.

After graduating from Georgetown and interviewing around the country at some of the nation’s most prestigious Orthopedic Residency programs, Dr. Webb felt that the best fit and program for him was the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. 

In addition to his surgical training at UT San Antonio, Dr. Webb was fortunate to learn under the guidance of Dr. Kaye Wilkins in Port Au Prince, Haiti, on two separate occasions. In 2018, he was awarded an AO trauma fellowship that allowed him to spend a month doing trauma and spine surgery in Bangkok, Thailand. 

Dr. Webb continued his training to subspecialize in Spine Surgery with a combined Neurosurgery and Orthopedic Spine Surgery Fellowship at Texas Back Institute in Plano, Texas. Throughout that year, Dr. Webb co-authored articles on cervical and lumbar artificial disc replacement while refining his surgical skills.

During his fellowship at Texas Back Institute, he learned how to utilize a multispecialty approach to treating the spine. He worked closely with therapists, interventional pain specialists, orthopedic spine surgeons, and neurosurgeons. He took the best practices from all his mentors to formulate his unique approach to spine care, believing that conservative treatment is the ultimate goal, only using surgery as a last resort.
