Dr. Antonio Webb is an Author, Motivational Speaker, and fellowship trained Spine Surgeon located in San Antonio, Texas.

After spending eight years in the US Air Force as a medic/LVN including a deployment north of Baghdad, Iraq in 2005, Dr Webb began his eleven-year journey of becoming an Orthopedic Spine Surgeon. After separating from the military in 2007, it would take Dr. Webb three years of applying to medical school before he received an acceptance. Each year, rejection letter after rejection letter came in, causing him to resort back to the drawing board each year. Dr. Webb went on to complete medical school at Georgetown University followed by a rigorous 5-year Orthopedic Surgery residency at UT San Antonio where he completed more than 2,000 surgeries. He then completed a combined Neurosurgery and Orthopedic Spine Surgery Fellowship at the Texas Back Institute in Plano, Texas. Dr. Webb’s medical training also afforded him the opportunity to operate and do surgery in Liberia, West Africa, Bangkok, Thailand, and Port Au Prince Haiti on two separate occasions.

One of his most rewarding activities, however, is serving as a mentor for underprivileged middle and high school students interested in a career in medicine. He volunteers to help because he says it is important for students to know “If I can do it, they can also.” Webb says his proudest moment would be when he encounters a student in later years who says, “I am in medical school because of you.”
