Page breadcrumbsEnd of page breadcrumbs

Dr. Saad Saad is a retired surgeon who specifically works with children. He has worked for several decades in various places including for the Saudi Arabian Royal Family, a position which he got due to his fluency both in English and Arabic for a person certified by the board in the US, a distinction that made him stand out from all other prospective pediatric surgeons.

 

He studied in Cairo, after which he went to England for an internship before moving to the United States which is where he became certified by the board which requires a person to have undertaken surgical procedures progressively, specialized training and excellence under challenging tests and exams ten after ten years. He worked at King Specialist Hospital while in Saudi Arabia. He even helped in creating a surgical residency program which allowed students from Saudi Arabia to do their training in the country. He’s served as Director and Surgeon-in-Chief for the K. Hovnanian Children Hospital after leaving Saudi Arabia.

 

Dr. Saad Saad is a physician who is continuously working to improve procedures that are already in place where he holds patents for making two inventions in the medical industry. He’s invented the Magnetic Medical Catheter, which are tubes inserted into the body of a person to aid in the treatment of medical condition or help in performing surgery on the victim. Traditionally, the tubes are inserted into the body with the help of x-rays or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, but in Saad’s invention’s case, utilizes electromagnetic energy to locate the catheters, thus replacing these traditional methods which are dangerous to a certain extent.

 

Dr. Saad’s other invention improves the Endoscope, an apparatus used by doctors to get a visual image of a patient’s insides, mostly the throat, colon stomach or bladder, without the need to operate or scanning the body. Traditionally, the examination could pose some difficulty due to issues with vision often because of liquids produced by the body. The doctor has to use suction devices to get rid of this liquids before utilizing the Endoscope.Dr. Saad Saad wanted to get rid of this bump by combining the functionalities of the suction apparatus and the Endoscope. This, however, is limited to lung, esophagus and colon examinations, whereby the device removes the liquids obstructing the doctor’s view without the need to remove the Endoscope and introducing a suction pump. The device also includes an irrigation mechanism that is used to clean the area before suction begins.

The latter has been implemented more than the Magnetic Catheter due to its cost-effectiveness and practicality. Making the job more comfortable for the doctor and reducing risks involved with specific procedures is the aim of the always progressing field of medical technology.
