Contributions of Dr. Saad Saad

As a pediatric surgeon, Dr. Saad Saad has been able to do numerous of procedures to the patients of different categories. The methods used for pediatric surgery were not pleasing to Dr. saad, and he had intentions of making them to operate better. The reason for his need to improve the technology used in carrying out the pediatric procedures was attributed by the pain and risks the patients were exposed to in the community. He is highly experienced because he has a vast experience serving as a pediatric surgeon. In the United States he served in four Medical Missions and Jerusalem he was allocated to eight Medical Missions where he offered surgeries to children from poor communities.

 

One of the inventions of Dr. Saad Saad was to improve the operations of catheters. Catheters have lots of functions but the major one they are inserted into the body of the patient for smooth performance of surgery operations. Catheters have different uses depending on the type of catheter used. They can be used to access surgical instruments easily, draining gases amongst many other functions. Dr. Saad Saad identifies the risk of using the catheters by surgeons when determining their positions in the body. X-ray could be carried out, and the position could be detected. The radiations emitted by the scanning from x-rays were a great threat to the life of the patient.

 

For this reason, Dr. Saad came up with the idea of improving the effectiveness of catheter without interfering with the life of the patients without scanning. With this, he invented the catheter with integral electromagnetic location identification device. This made the surgeons to know the exact position of the catheter without scanning the patients. The device was not complicated, and other surgeons could use comfortably and carry out their surgical procedures to patients.

 

An endoscope was another method that Dr. Saad Saad improved its performance. This is an instrument used by surgeons to examine the inside organs of the patients. They are fitted with an optical device for an unobstructed view. The use of endoscope was effective; however, the problem was that the optical lens would be obstructed with the fluid produced in the body and doctor would have to remove the endoscope and wipe the liquid and start the process again.

 

Therefore, Dr. Saad improved the functionality of the endoscope by inserting a suction device. This clears the way for the endoscope, and no fluid can obstruct the view of the surgeon. The inventions made by Dr. Saad Saad in the medical industry helped the surgeons to improve their surgical operations.

 

Besides, Dr. Saad offers his services to lots of hospitals in New Jersey where he has over 21 years in the industry. He received his degree from Cairo University.
