Being a doctor takes a lot of time, energy, and skill. Patients are in their care and depend on them when they need it the most. This is no different when it comes to children. Dr. Saad Saad is a pediatrician and has performed thousands of crucial surgeries on children from infants to teenagers. It takes a lot of skill what he does but seems to handle it with grace. Saad Saad has traveled to Jerusalem to perform often complex life saving surgeries on poor children on Medical Missions. He has been there at least eight times. The doctor also accomplished another four medical missions for children in the United States. He has won awards for his dedication and skill.
Dr. Saad Saad has patented two inventions that have been life saving and has helped tremendously. One of them has to do with medical catheters. They are put in the body temporarily or permanently for a number of reasons. With catheters they can give access to fluids, drain gases, and surgical instruments. Medical catheters are very helpful but need a little assistance being found. Doctors use X-rays and MRI’s to find them in a patient’s body. Unfortunately MRI’s, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, are incredibly huge machines and are not portable. This poses quite a challenge. Also, X-rays give patients small doses of radiation each time. Dr. Saad Saad invented an electromagnetic location identification device. The other invention has to do with endoscopes. They help doctors locate possible issues going on in the windpipe, throat, bladder, and colon. The endoscope gets fogged up with liquids when it goes into the body. They then have to remove the endoscope and suction out the liquid and start the process all over again from the start. That is why Dr. Saad Saad created a device that suctions out the liquid without the doctor losing their place where they were looking inside the patient’s body. They can continue the process without losing their spot. That is why Dr. Saad Saad has won patients over and is well loved.
Palestinian doctor with a big heart Dr. Saad Saad has made a huge impact in the medical field. In 1971 he graduated from Cairo University in Egypt with his medical degree. Saad Saad decided to become a doctor after working in construction with his big brothers in 100 plus degree weather in Kuwait when he was younger. It was enough to change his mind about his career path and work indoors under air conditioning.
The successful doctor is associated with a few hospitals in Monmouth Medical Center, Clara Maass Medical Center, and Jersey Shore University Medical Center. Saad Saad has won multiple awards including the Compassionate Doctor Recognition and the Patients’ Choice Award in 2014.
