Logan’s Surgery

Logan, a juvenile Green Sea Turtle had previously undergone an endoscope procedure to ensure there weren’t any internal fibropapilloma tumors. After waiting several weeks to build up the small turtle’s strength, another operation was performed, this time to remove external tumors from the flippers, neck and eye.




Doctor Gerri Deithelm from the Marathon Veterinary Hospital came in on her day off to perform the surgery, assisted by Turtle Hospital staff.


Logan is doing well, back in his tank and eating offered food.
