Dr Conrad Murray, former doctor to late pop superstar Michael Jackson, has indicated he intends to return to Trinidad and set up a centre of excellence for health care.

Murray spoke to the Express on Carnival Tuesday as he proceeded to hit the road with Island People mas band.

“It’s just a fabulous time to be back and see the festivities and see everybody frolic and be free of incidents and crime and all of that and just have a holistic experience that you won’t find anywhere else in the world but in Trinidad.”

Murray is no stranger to Trinidad as his mother lives here and he frequented the capital city to perform heart surgeries at St Clair Medical Hospital.

He had met with Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan last year when he offered his services on a consultancy basis to assist children in need of specialist care treatment in the US.

Murray said he has a special love for Trinidad and its people and wants to give back to this country.

“I am certainly making a promise to come to Trinidad and to transform medicine to a new level that they have not seen,” he said.

“That will include the very first centre of excellence for acute stroke intervention, which means anyone who has a embryonic stroke, not haemorrhagic stroke, upon the presentation of symptoms if they are able to get to my centre within four hours I will reverse all of the effects of that stroke, 90 per cent or greater.”

Murray said these plans were in the “development stages” at the moment and he wants to include a vascular unit in the centre that will be based on referrals.

“We will have people from different parts of the world flying into Trinidad for the very first time to get speciality care for vascular cases. I am also considering looking at complete overall wellness, where we will look at the androgens and the hormonals aspect of the human body, natural preservation,” said Murray.

He said people face a lot of health issues such as hair loss and sex drive problems which are tied to nutrition and there will be a wealth of information and care provided.

Asked whether he had obtained his medical licence from Trinidad or the US, or if he plans to operate based on a consultancy level where he is not hands on, Murray replied: “That is not yet completed, but I clearly do plan one day, I don’t know exactly the date or when, I will have a licence and be able to practise.”


So is this wishful thinking on Murray's part or will he be able to practice medicine again?


Here is  story from a few years back where Murray would go to Trinidad while living in the States to help with surgeries:

Dr Conrad Murray worked in TT
By SEAN DOUGLAS Friday, October 7 2011

DR Conrad Murray, now on trial in the USA for the involuntary manslaughter of pop icon, the late Michael Jackson, once practised as a doctor in TT, Newsday has learnt.

Murray, a Grenada-born TT national, grew up in El Socorro but migrated to the USA where he studied and practised medicine and later returned to TT a few times to treat patients.

Dr Kongshiek Achong Low, head of the local private hospital, St Clair Medical Centre, yesterday told Newsday that Murray was brought down to TT occasionally by cardiologist Dr Ronald Henry to work at St Clair.

“Dr Henry invited him to Trinidad. I’d never met Murray, but just saw him once. That was about 11 or 12 years ago. I didn’t have as much input at St Clair Medical Centre as I do now,” said Achong Low.

“Dr Henry knew Murray and invited him. He worked for Dr Henry in some procedures he’d be doing. Dr Henry was at St Clair Medical Centre. He would come to TT for one week at a time, at Dr Henry’s invitation.”

Asked about Murray’s reputation in TT, Achong Low replied, “I don’t know. Dr Henry would provide patients for him.”

Speaking to Newsday at his office at Oxford Street, Port-of-Spain on Wednesday, Henry refused to comment on his links to Murray.

“This has been commented on when the story first broke, by a couple of local docs. I have not commented,” said Henry.

“I have said to other requests such as yours recently, that I have thought about this for quite awhile, and have made the determination that while this is before the courts, and the courts are going on, I really would not have any public statements on the matter.”

“I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more assistance. I understand the need for knowledge, but I don’t think now is the time for me to comment,” he added.

Reports reaching Newsday are Murray was not persuaded, financially, to stick around in TT but instead sought out greener pastures in the USA.

Murray is on trial for the June 25 death of Michael Jackson who suffered a heart attack allegedly caused by a drug overdose. In his defence, Murray has denied giving the fatal dose, instead claiming that it was self-administered by Jackson.



Love you Michael!
