Dr. Saad Saad: Inventor of Innovations

Dr. Saad Saad is a successful retired pediatric surgeon located in Eatontown, New Jersey. He has worked in the field for 47 years with many accomplishments that show exciting his career was. Dr. Saad is a great motivator and ensures everyone that if he was a poor Palestine refugee that succeeded at his goals, then anyone else can achieve their goals as well. At a young age, Dr. Saad decided to become a pediatric surgeon. After he graduated from high school, he attended Cairo University Medical School. He graduated with honors and held the title of salutatorian of his class. Dr. Saad then came to the United States to become board certified. After that, he received an invitation to work for the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia. After his tenure with the royal family was over, Dr. Saad returned to the states with thoughts on how to make the surgical experience better for his patients. That’s when he created and patented two devices.

 

The first device was the Catheter that has an Electromagnetic Location ability. Traditionally, catheters cannot be located once they are inserted. Surgeons use X-rays to find the exact location of the catheter for safe removal. The only problem with this method is that it some patients have to have multiple X-rays. Multiple X-rays can subject the patient to unsafe levels of radiation. Dr. Saad’s Catheter model has wires inside. The catheter is located by using an external scanning device. Once the scanning device is in direct alignment of the catheter, it lights up. Therefore it eliminates the need for multiple X-rays.

The second device is an endoscope that includes suction irrigation. This device is amazing as it helps surgeons in a number of ways. Dr. Saad created the Endoscope to make the surgical process easier. For example, a traditional endoscope is used to look inside the stomach, throat, and colon. The body naturally produces fluids, and because of this, the endoscope becomes foggy. When the endoscope is hazy, the surgeon is unable to see clearly. In fact, they have to remove the device and clean it off. Once, it’s cleaned off, it can then be reinserted. Dr. Saad’s invention allows doctors to spray clear fluid to clean the device. It also has an anti-fog port that suctions out the liquid so that the surgeon can see clearly. It is a great invention as it lowers the amount of time it takes to perform the procedure. Since doctors don’t have to remove it in the middle of the process, it optimizes the patient’s experience. Overall, Dr. Saad has made a big difference throughout his career. Both of his devices have been used by him to complete thousands of procedures with great success.
