Our Mission

The mission of the Orthopedic Kneed Foundation is to offer assistance in educational opportunities to students pursuing careers in athletics and athletic training, while also offering orthopedic medical care to uninsured youth in the greater San Antonio area.


Dr. Holmes and his team of professionals will provide free surgeries to those students in need including all clinical visits, XRAYS, physical therapy and rehabilitation, orthopedic braces & equipment when necessary


As a 501 (C)(3) charity, The Orthopedic Kneed Foundation relies on the donations from supporters like you. To accomplish our goal of continued orthopedic care for injured youth, we need financial contributions.

The how & the why

Dr. Peter Holmes began years ago stepping in and helping young people with sports injuries who could not afford complete care. Dr. Holmes was constantly contacted by families with children who have been injured primarily in school sports or other activities who could not get the proper orthopedic care due to lack of medical insurance. Thus the Orthopedic Kneed Foundation was formed so Dr. Holmes won’t ever have to turn a kid away!.

Dr. Holmes and his team of professionals will do the surgeries and follow up including clinic visits, X-Rays, physical therapy, etc. at No cost. We work with kids who otherwise will not be able to continue with their present life goals and ambitions. Funding is made possible through individual donations, whether on a monthly basis, end of year donation, or whenever you can through our Pay Pal donate now link or in person at our office! We also hold various charity events at local restaurants and sell Fiesta Medals! Stay in touch on our Facebook page.
