Dr. Saad Saad is a well-known pediatric surgeon that has made significant contributions to pediatric healthcare. Dr. Saad was born and raised in Palestine and later relocated to Kuwait. After graduating from high school, he attended Cairo University Medical School where he graduated as the salutatorian of his class. Dr. Saad went on to become board certified by the United States. He spent most of his career working in Eatontown, New Jersey. However, he also worked for the Saudi Arabia Royal Family for five years. There he served as their pediatric surgeon assisting the children in the community. He has also participated in multiple medical missions that gave him the opportunity to perform surgeries on children that were less fortunate for free. Dr. Saad is most known for the two devices that he created that will forever be listed as innovations of their time.
Dr. Saad’s first invention was an innovated catheter. Both the traditional catheter and Dr. Saad’s model are inserted the same way. However, for the conventional catheter to be located, surgeons have to use an X-ray. Using an X-ray is the simple way to locate the device. At the same time, some patients require multiple X-rays to determine its location. That’s where Dr. Saad’s device comes in and saves the day. His model catheter has wires inside. The wires are used to send electromagnetic signals to an external scanning device. Surgeons scan the individual’s body, and once the scanner is aligned with the catheter, a light comes on. The invention is an excellent addition to medical science as it protects patients from unsafe levels of exposure to radiation.
Dr. Saad’s second invention is a futuristic endoscope that gives surgeons the ability to clean and suction bodily fluids during the procedure. It is the device that surgeons all over the world have been waiting for. One of the most significant issues with performing an endoscopy occurs when the endoscope becomes hazy. For the surgeon to properly perform the procedure, they need to be able to see. Therefore, when the endoscope becomes foggy, they remove it. Once they remove the device, they prepare it for reinsertion by cleaning it. Dr. Saad’s endoscope model diminishes the need to remove the device in the middle of a procedure. Surgeons can easily spray liquid on the endoscope and suction the fluid away. It lowers the amount of time it takes to perform the procedure, which is a great thing for the surgeon and the patient. Let’s not forget that Dr. Saad has successfully used this device in thousands of surgeries with great success! Widespread use of this device is underway as it is inexpensive to make. Dr. Saad is an innovator and has changed pediatric surgery as we used to know it.
