Mr. Derrick E. Lousaing - Physician at Fracture And Orthopaedic Clinic Limited

Mr. Derrick E. Lousaing

B.Sc., M.B.B.S., F.R.C.S., (Ed)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Mr. Derrick Emmanuel Lousaing graduated from the University of the West Indies, Mona Jamaica Medical program in 1984 after having attained a B.Sc. in Marine Zoology with upper 2nd class honors in 1978.

Mr. Lousaing returned to Trinidad and worked at the Port of Spain General Hospital in various surgical disciplines until 1987. He subsequently pursued a post graduate degree at the Fellow of Royal College of Surgeons, (FRCS) Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K. and obtained an FRCS (Ed) in 1989 while working his way up from Senior SHO to Senior Registrar in Orthopaedics.

After returning to T&T in 1991, Mr. Lousaing pioneered both hip and knee arthroplasty, and since 1993 has continued to be a prolific arthroplasty surgeon performing approximately 150 total joint replacements per year.

Mr. Lousaing holds membership with several Orthopaedic Societies such as the AAOS, the British Orthopaedic Association and the Caribbean Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Recognizing the importance of continuing his medical education, he participated in numerous hands-on and laboratory-type training in all aspects of orthopaedic surgery and continues to do so to date.

His main interests are complex orthopaedic trauma to the pelvis and lower limb, hip and knee arthroplasty; all aspects of arthroscopic surgery and knee ligament reconstruction.

The Fracture and Orthopaedic Clinic was started in 1995 with a colleague, Mr. Godfrey Araujo, to improve patient care and optimizing patients’ outcome. Hence the mission statement, “Helping patients maximize mobility.”
