    Once you’ve made the decision to have orthopedic surgery, you want someone there to ensure you receive the best possible care as well as quality information. This is Kathleen Webster’s role. Kathleen is an RN, BSN, ONC and the Orthopedic Nurse Navigator at San Antonio Regional Hospital. As someone who can help facilitate streamlined care, she’ll also provide access to vital information and resources regarding your treatment and recovery. You’ll meet her first when she contacts you to schedule your pre-op education class. She’ll follow you through admitting, be with you on the day of surgery, and through rehabilitation – communicating with your physicians daily. She’ll also help you through the discharge process, making sure you understand your instructions, that you have all your equipment, medications, and treatments arranged, when to follow-up with your surgeon, and even check on you after you go home.

    Your clinical resource expert.
    Your partner in health.
