Facilitating optimal care and recovery
Children of all ages engage in all kinds of activities, sports, work on the ranch, riding their bikes to school, etc. It is inevitable that a certain number will incur orthopedic injuries. The rising cost of healthcare and healthcare coverage has resulted in an increasing number of children at risk of not receiving optimal care. In the year 2006, 80,623 kids who applied for help through the CHIPS healthcare program were denied! It is the vision of The Orthopedic Kneed Foundation to assist injured young people return to their pre injury condition who are not covered by health insurance.
Orthopedic injuries vary in severity and though many can be treated with one visit to the doctor’s office there are others that require further treatment and intervention for good recovery. The Orthopedic Kneed Foundation’s vision is to facilitate optimal care and recovery. By offering free office visits for diagnosis including x rays, we then prescribe necessary medical solutions as well as physical therapy and specific sports strength training. We partner with excellent professionals in these fields who also donate their expertise for these athletes.(see link ) Then if necessary Dr. Holmes and his staff will do the surgeries at no cost. The funds we raise cover the costs incurred for the hospital and operating room expenses.
An orthopedic injury can be resolved and it is our mission to get these kids back “on their feet!” We treat youth whom are unable to receive the care they need due to lack of adequate medical insurance.
