  Mari Gutierrez, Orthopaedic Nurse

Mari Gutierrez profileHaving lived in Houston for a few years, I returned to my native San Antonio to pursue my nursing career. I knew I wanted to become a nurse after participating in the delivery of my niece, 19 years ago. I have worked in labor & delivery and skilled nursing. From 2004 to 2011 I worked as an orthopaedic surgical nurse. I find it very rewarding helping people regain their active lives. I especially enjoy working with Dr. Wilcox as he has an abundance of knowledge and is so eager to share that knowledge both with me and his patients. I am a member of the National Association of Professional Women. On my free time I enjoy spending time in the Texas Hill Country and love cooking. I listen to all genres of music and try to take every opportunity to go horseback riding as I believe that any time spent in a saddle, is never wasted time. Dr. Wilcox and I look forward to meeting and taking care of your orthopaedic needs.

"I have been a registered medical assistant for 12 years, 10 of which have been in Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. I feel that this is my field of passion and I value the knowledge and experience I have gained over the years. This allows me to confidently educate my patients.  Currently, I work with Dr. Simon as a back office clinic assistant providing direct patient care and coordinating surgery. When I am not working, my time is spent with my family and loving dogs. My three sons play year-round football and basketball, so I really enjoy watching them compete and having orthopedic experience gives me peace of mind when it comes to their injuries."

“It’s been a year since Mom’s surgery, and I wanted to send some pictures to show you how great she’s doing. In October, she went to Ft. Walton Beach, FL , with my brother and sister-in-law. She truly enjoyed herself. In December, she and I flew to Seattle, WA, to visit our cousins.
