One of Dr. Saad Saad’s inventions has recently caught the eye of a major medical equipment manufacturer. This means that his catheter that is trackable using electromagnetic technology may soon be used in hospitals and operating rooms around the world. Dr. Saad Saad invented the catheter that works in a similar way to metal detectors because he didn’t like the way that catheters had to be placed.
The traditional method required X-ray machines or MRIs to be used in order to make sure that the catheter was being placed in the correct position. With this device, not only do medical professionals not have to use the bulky equipment that is associated with traditional catheters, they also don’t have to expose their patients to the harmful radiation that is used for those types of imaging.
Not only is Dr. Saad Saad known for his inventions that include both physical equipment and his own unique techniques, he is also a talented surgeon. In his 40 year career, he has helped thousands of patients. He specialized in complex surgical procedures on children of all ages. His prowess for creating new devices stems from his desire to have a career in engineering during his younger years. Fortunately for his patients and their families, he changed his mind and decided on being a surgeon.
His inspiration for the devices and procedures that he creates comes from necessity. When Dr. Saad Saad sees a problem or an area in surgery that he thinks could use improvement, he seeks out to be the one who makes a difference. Not only do his inventions help the medical professionals that are using them, they also help the patients by making the results safer with less pain and risks.
Dr. Saad Saad believes that all children should be able to receive the medical treatment that they need to live fulfilling lives. He holds himself and his staff up to the standard that all of their patients be treated in the same way that they would treat their own children if they were the ones on the operating table. No matter the child’s race, religion, background, or financial status, Dr. Saad Saad wants them to be able to live healthy lives. His inspiration for this came from the fact that he grew up in a struggling family in the country of Kuwait.
Dr. Saad Saad has lived in the United States for the last 45 years and during his career was the Surgeon-in-Chief at the K Hovnanian Children’s Hospital as well as their Director. His productive career has improved the lives of many children, both his own patients and the ones of other doctors that have implemented his techniques.
