In Dr. Saad Saad words “necessity is the mother of invention” is why he created and patented two life saving medical inventions. He is dedicated to his patient’s well being and is constantly finding new ways to make their lives better. The successful and accomplish surgeon has provided countless surgeries on eight medical missions to Jerusalem and four medical missions to poor and disadvantaged children. Dr. Saad Saad is always finding ways to reduce his patient’s pain through research, new inventions, and talking to his colleagues.
His two patented inventions have made quite a difference in the lives of children so far and have made it a lot easier for doctors to perform these procedures. Endoscopes are a very useful device that helps doctors look inside a patient’s body to see what is going on without the need for a body scan or surgery. Endoscopes can look inside a patient’s windpipe, their stomach, throat, colon, and bladder. Using this device does come with its challenges. Because it has a screen to see inside a patient’s body, it can get fogged up and covered with fluids inside the body. When this happens doctors have to remove the endoscope and put in a suction tube to remove the liquid to they can get an accurate assessment of what’s going on inside. Unfortunately doctors may struggle to remember the spot where they left off. Dr. Saad Saad created a device that suctions out the fluid without doctor having to divert their eyes from the endoscope. This great device is used by doctors all over the United States and is cheap to manufacture.
The other invention Dr. Saad Saad patented has to do with catheters. They are used for a number of uses for medical and surgery. They are put into patient’s permanently or temporarily. With that being said doctors use different methods to find them. Two way they traditionally find them is with MRI’s (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and X-rays. The thing is MRI’s which are huge machines that are certainly not portable. X-ray are not harmful but expose patients to radiation each time they do an MRI. Dr. Saad Saad created a device that uses electromagnetic energy to find the catheter. It is growing in popularity with doctors around the country.
