Dr. Saad Saad is a pediatric surgeon who once served the royal family in Saudi Arabia as their personal surgeon. As a board certified pediatric surgeon from the United States, he can speak Arabic and English, and he lived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for close to half a decade while serving the royal family. He was born in Kuwait but now lives in the United States. Saad Saad earned his medical degree with honors while studying at Cairo University, and he eventually jumped all of the hoops to become certified by the board in the United States.
Dr. Saad Saad has recently created two innovations that will surely help out other surgeons in his field. One of these creations is an electromagnetic attachment that will help surgeons find medical catheters after they are placed into patients’ bodies. The need for this invention stems from the fact that catheters are often found through x-rays, which can cause radiation damage to patients who have to get multiple x-rays over the course of their life. It also bypasses the need for bulky MRI machines, which have been hard to work with from the beginning. With his invention, all a surgeon has to do is to place an external locating device above the patients body and move it around until two wires light up. This gives them the location of the catheter, and this simple sounding invention should make it much less difficult to work with catheters. Learn more: https://www.crunchbase.com/person/saad-saad
Dr. Saad Saad also invented another very helpful piece of technology, which is related to endoscopes. These devices are used to see inside of a patient’s body, but have to be taken out to be cleaned up due to liquid and gases that fog it up inside of the human body. This causes delays and other inconveniences during surgery, and Dr. Saad Saad‘s new invention takes care of this issue. Most endoscopes have an anti-fog port on them, which only helps sometimes. Dr. Saad Saad decided to replace this port with a suction device that will suck up liquid and gas as it goes about its business. This saves a lot of time, which can be the difference between life and death in many surgeries.
Dr. Saad Saad has personally used these devices and is happy with the results. As a surgeon who has performed many endoscopies during his career, he knows just how helpful his invention will be. The suction and irrigation device he invented is cheap to construct, and many doctors are using it to make their life and their patients’ lives easier. Dr. Saad Saad has been quoted as saying that “necessity is the mother of invention,” and he is right. His inventions are very needed, and many surgeons and pediatric surgeons, alike, will surely find them useful.
