Dr. Saad Saad who is a highly innovative pediatric surgeon is recently retired having served for 47 years. Migrating to the United States in 1980 after serving in Saudi Arabia for years helping patients who needed complex surgical procedures but lacked financial support, he became the only qualified pediatric surgeon in the entire U.S that was proficient in English and Arabic during that time.

Dr. Saad Saad has always been on the forefront of helping his pat  ients recover faster and experience minimal or no pain at all during his medical procedures and that is the reason he has been developing new processes and methods to improve his care. The doctor in under this objective has developed several medical systems like in one instance he removed the second incision from a young boy’s body through a technique that was able to be applied and used successfully on other patients. He has also patented two inventions that have helped improve surgical procedures, and these are;

  1. The development of a catheter. A catheter is a tube that is inserted into the body during surgery to help drain fluids and gases. The machine is used for other procedures with the most known one being to help remove urine during an operation.

Initially when doctors needed to use the tool they had to locate its specific position by doing an X-ray or a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) the two procedures posed a threat of causing radiation effects to the patient after continued exposure. As such Dr. Saad invented a Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device that acts as a metal detector to locate the catheter location. He has fixed the catheter tip with a loop that has wires inside it and a magnetically porous material that allows a doctor to use an external locating device that sends signals to the magnetic coil tip to locate its position.

This invention has been proved to be very supportive since it is small and portable and has come in handy especially during emergency situations when doctors do not have time to perform a full body scan, it has also mitigated the use of guide wires in placing of the catheters inside a patient body.

  1. The Image suction and Irrigation endoscope. An endoscope is a device that doctors use to look inside the patient’s body without necessarily doing surgery or scan. This pipe which is attached to an optical camera has had challenges during use because in some instances the fluids or fog inside the bodies covers the lens. Dr. Saad Saad has come up with a witty invention that has the endoscope attached to suction to suck up fluids and at the same time irrigator to clear the view.
