Dr. Saad Saad: Generating Improvements to Catheters and endoscopes

The article “The Life Saving Medical Inventions of Dr. Saad Saad, Pediatric Surgeon” covers some of the acceptable work that is being completed by Dr. Saad Saad when it comes to inventions in the medical community. His considerable work is backed by his decades of experience in the medical field as a pediatric surgeon all over the world. He graduated with honors in Egypt from Cairo University. While there he studied medicine and went on to appreciate an internship in England. After his internship ended he looked for residency options in the United States, establishing himself in the medical field. He was eventually appointed to the primary physician of the Saudi Arabian royal family for pediatric surgery, because of his good work and ability to communicate fluently in both English and Arabic. He remains a very important member of the medical community to this day.


Some of the inventions that he has created are improvements on current devices that are being used today. These improvements make the devices even more necessary for successful medical treatment and help remove some of the complications associated with their use. One of these devices is an endoscope attachment that allows doctors to perform additional functions while also operating the endoscope. Since endoscopes are typically used in the stomach and throat area, it is common for it to become fogged or for the liquid to flood the area that the doctor is working on. With the help of Dr. Saad Saad, doctors are able to both irrigate and suck out the liquid would normally be cumbersome to deal with. Instead, they are able to complete the procedure in a timely manner.


Another invention that is an improvement over typical functioning is in the new and improved catheter. Now, while catheters have been used for much of medical history to help facilitate various activities within the body, establishing the location of such catheters inside of the body has remained archaic. X-rays are typically used to locate them within the body, putting additional strain on to the patients. Typically, individuals who require some type of catheterization are already a little compromised, this means that having extensive x-rays to establish the location of their catheter will be detrimental to their overall health. In general, Dr. Saad Saad wanted to find a way to avoid this process. With his new locator device that can be attached to the end of most catheters, he is able to locate it within the body rather quickly using a portable device that can fit in his hands. He believes that the implications of such a device are tremendous and will allow doctors to serve many patients quickly. While this invention is not being produced yet, he has high hopes for its future in the market. Learn more:
