Derek Louis-Fernand Knee Surgery(Tibial Osteotomy)

Derek Louis-Fernand’s Knee Surgery (Tibial Osteotomy)
Derek who is currently located in Saint Lucia is a former national swimmer and coach for the Saint Lucia National Swim Team. Derek is also very active when it comes to sports, his career and life.
In 2016 while playing a commercial Soccer league, Derek was tackled and received a Horizontal Lateral Meniscus Tear of his right knee. In 2017 Derek underwent an arthroscopic or keyhole surgery followed by intense rehabilitation.
In 2019 after receiving an affectionate shoulder from one of his Pitbull (Tye) to the knee, Derek then started experiencing pain and inflammation which then had him schedule a follow up visit with his surgeon.

An examination carried out which prompted an MRI showed a severe sprain by rupture of the ACL, which presented degenerative internal femoro-tibial lesions pre-arthritis from the initial injury.
The Surgeon has recommended Tibial Osteotomy which is a surgical procedure that realigns the knee joint. A wedge of bone is removed, the tibia may be held in place with a plate and screws.
He intends to have the surgery done mid – end of October 2020.
This campaign will assist in funding of the surgery in the neighboring French Island Martinique and also the after-surgery rehabilitation and physiotherapy in a medical facility.
Without immediate surgery, Derek may be confined to crutches which will decrease his mobility.
