Dr. Saad Saad is well-known for being a very successful pediatric surgeon. He has also invented the catheter with integral electromagnetic location identification device, and he has also greatly improved the endoscope.
Medial catheters are used to treat medical conditions and to assist in difficult surgical procedures. They are normally used to gain access to surgical instruments, to drain fluids and gases and other tasks. Catheters can be either temporary or permanent, and surgeons typically use an x-ray to locate the catheter once it is in the body. Many x-rays may be needed depending on the situation. Multiple x-rays can cause excessive radiation, and an MRI machine is large and not portable which make them an impractical option. Dr. Saad Saad’s invention makes it possible to locate the catheter without the use of an MRI or an x-ray machine. His invention is small, practical, and portable which makes it ideal for use in the ICU in the event of emergencies when there just is not enough time to perform a body scan in order to find the catheter.
His second invention has greatly improved the function of the endoscope. An endoscope is used to look within the body of the patient during surgery or during an examination. They can be used to look at various parts of the body such as in the throat, inside the stomach, colon, and in the bladder. Unfortunately, the lens of the endoscope tends to fog up caused by the fluids inside the body.
Dr. Saad Saad’s invention is a device that suctions the liquids away, and this prevents the lens from fogging up. His invention is easy and inexpensive to manufacture, and Dr. Saad uses it himself to perform surgeries. His invention makes it so that the doctor does not have to continually clear the view during a procedure and makes the process less invasive and uncomfortable for the patient.
Dr. Saad Saad believes that it is important always to be inventing and trying to find improvement. Dr. Saad Saad has performed countless surgeries successfully and has devoted his life to helping others and to keep people alive. He has been on many medical missions in the United States as well as abroad. He feels that everyone should have the opportunity to get the care that they deserve no matter what their financial situation may be or what their background is.
He performed the first surgery on the youngest infant with an aneurysm and had even served as the pediatric surgeon for the royal family of Saudi Arabia for nearly five years. He also made it possible for students to live at home as they study for their certification rather than abroad in England. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/saad-saad-524707159/
