Surgical procedures have been around for centuries, and physicians are doing their best to improve each method, giving their patients a painless and convenient process every time they get inside the operating room. Dr. Saad Saad, a general and pediatric surgeon from Palestine who currently lives in the United States developed two patents that enhanced the catheter and the endoscope. His patents numbered 5,727,553 and 5,725,478, were designed with the primary goal of providing the patients with a painless surgical procedure. The patents have been known in the medical world, but only a handful of doctors are using the procedures. Dr. Saad Saad wishes that more physicians would find out about his patents and use them effectively.
Dr. Saad Saad was born from a middle-class Palestinian family who have fled their homeland because of endless conflict. They resettled in Kuwait, where he spent most of his childhood life. Before he went to college, his brothers were telling him that he should become an engineer, just like them. However, he was not interested in becoming an engineer, because it would require him to work outside and do tasks that he does not want. For him, being an engineer in the Middle East would only make him sick. He told his parents about his concern in becoming an engineer and said to them that he wanted to become a doctor instead because he would be working inside a cool and comfortable environment. His parents told him that they would be supporting whatever decisions he has.
After graduating from high school, the young Saad Saad enrolled in a local college near his home where he would be taking up a pre-medical degree, which is a requirement for everyone who wanted to become a doctor. Upon finishing the pre-medical degree, he told his parents that he would be taking up his medical proper at the Cairo University – one of the most prestigious educational institutions in the Middle East. The young Saad Saad studied hard, and according to his friends, he would also lock himself up inside his room to study, while his friends are going out to have fun.
His dedication in studying resulted to him being awarded honors during their graduation ceremony, but his journey towards becoming a doctor did not end in Cairo University. He had to travel to the United Kingdom and work as an intern before he could get his professional license. In the end, Dr. Saad Saad got his professional license, and he took an examination in Lebanon that would allow him to live and work in the United States. When he was already in the United States, he decided to take up new courses that gave him certification in general and pediatric surgery. Learn more: https://angel.co/saad-saad-2
