Dr. Saad Saad, Advancing the Surgical Field.

Posted by

Dr. Saad Saad is a name that has earned its recognition in the medical world, specifically the pediatric world as he has done a lot to contribute to this field. He has performed thousands of surgeries both inside and outside his community.

 

Dr. Saad apart from working in New Jersey, he not only had the chance but also had the dedication to serve the broader world community. He had a high probability of being Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family’s family pediatrician.

 

He worked at King Faisal Specialist Hospital, and patients came from neighboring countries to enlist his services. He also went on medical missions; four in the US and eight in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

 

Dr. Saad was born in Palestine and raised in Kuwait. He later went on to follow his dream to be a pediatric surgeon by joining Cairo University where he got his Medical degree with honors and also coming second in his class.

 

Dr. Saad challenged the status quo constantly in efforts to find ways that will reduce both pains and risk his patients faced. Alongside many new medical procedures that he has introduced, he has patented two inventions.

 

Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device. The problem he was seeking to solve was the location of the catheters without using x-rays or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

 

The problem with using x-rays is that frequent use exposes a patient to doses of radiation repeatedly. The MRIs, on the other hand, is impractical because they are large hence not portable.

 

Dr. Saad thus came up with a device for locating the catheter without any machine scan on the body. His invention utilizes electromagnetic energy to determine the catheter as the catheter houses magnetically permeable material within the coil and a pair of wires confined by its walls.

 

The doctors use an exterior device that scans the exterior of the patient’s body sending signals to the coil and thus an output voltage is formed and is conducted through the wires and light is illuminated in the locating device giving away the position of the catheter.

 

Instruments and Methods that provide suction in a rigid endoscope and maintains visuals through the endoscope to the target area. As Endoscopes look inside a patient’s body, bodies at the time produce liquids that may hinder the performance of an endoscope mainly via obstruction.

 

Dr. Saad thus had a suction-irrigation device replace the anti-fog port. Previously, the suction device and endoscope were separate with the doctor having to retract where he had left off. With this device, suction and observation can be both performed without having to remove the endoscope.

 

The following invention is cheap to produce and is widely used. The former invention not as widely used as the production has not yet picked up the pace. Learn more: https://medium.com/@dr1saadsaad
