Dr. Saad Saad: Innovating Surgical Procedures

by , under Doctor, Medical

Dr. Saad Saad is a Palestinian doctor who has a certification in general and pediatric surgery. He acquired these certifications after he decided to settle in the United States, where he believes that a lot of opportunities await. During his stay in the United States, he had the idea to expand his knowledge in surgery, and he took up the certifications in general and pediatric surgery after it was offered in a nearby institution. Dr. Saad Saad managed to use his knowledge in a lot of situations, and he was also capable of saving lives thanks to the information he learned while studying about surgical procedures.



Dr. Saad Saad came from a family of refugees. His parents had to leave Palestine to stay in Kuwait. When he was in high school, he told his parents that he wanted to become a doctor because he wanted to help a lot of people. Initially thinking that he would become an engineer, his parents were surprised about his sudden decision. Nevertheless, they gave their permission and told his son that they would be supporting him. He had to study locally for his pre-medical degree and in Cairo, Egypt for his medical degree. He also needed to go to the United Kingdom for his internship, and when he got his license, he took up an examination in Lebanon which would give him the permission to live and work in the United States.



Throughout his career as a doctor, Dr. Saad Saad was credited with developing two inventions that would lessen the pain felt by the patients when going under surgery. These inventions are also used to decrease the risks associated with the procedure. Aside from the devices that he created, several other procedures were developed because of him. His inventions are not yet used globally, but American doctors have been talking with their overseas counterparts to give the inventions a chance. The devices that were invented by Dr. Saad Saad include a catheter that has the Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device capability and an endoscope that has been redeveloped for a painless operation. These patents have been registered, earning the patent numbers 5,727,553 and 5,725,478, respectively.



Dr. Saad Saad stated that one of the reasons why he wanted to develop new devices for surgeries is because he wanted to help a lot of people who need surgical assistance but hospital facilities lack the required medications, just like in Palestine. He was inspired by one of his colleagues to return to Palestine and spearhead medical missions. Today, thousands of Palestinians benefited from the program, and most of them have been given surgical procedures for free. Dr. Saad Saad stated that it is a pleasure for him to serve his people, and relayed how happy the population is after they received treatment.
