Innovative Therapies

Advanced medical equipment is critical to saving lives. At LMC, those lives are sea turtle patients. Due to generous support from donors, the Gordon & Patricia Gray Hospital is now home to two additional world class machines, which transform patient outcomes and allow our ocean-side campus to serve as a global teaching hub.LMC’s high-definition ultrasound machine enables hospital staff to clearly examine the intricate anatomy of sea turtle patients. This provides staff with a different perspective on ailments, allowing them to formulate targeted treatment plans.

The second device, the Karl Storz EndoSkope, is the most advanced of its kind.  Many of our sea turtle patients have complex internal medical challenges; such as plastic and fishing hook ingestion. The endoscope’s high-definition digital monitor allows LMC’s veterinarian to better examine delicate organs. Should patients need an endoscopic procedure, the team at LMC now has one of the most advanced tools available.
