Dr. Saad Saad: Medical Innovation

Dr. Saad Saad is a man that should be looked up to for all of his time and energy towards making the world a better place. Dr. Saad’s life had humble beginnings. Dr. Saad has experienced a great deal of lack in his lifetime. His story is inspirational as he believes that if he accomplished his goals being a Palestinian refugee, then anyone can do it.

 

Dr. Saad suddenly became a Palestinian refugee at a young age with no money and in need of a new start. His father had a skillset that was in high demand, so they were able to go to Kuwait for a new beginning. Dr. Saad decided early on that he wantedp to work in an air-conditioned facility after fainting due to the heat. After completing medical school, and his residency, he migrated to the United States for his next big accomplishment. Dr. Saad became board certified making him the best candidate for his next career move. Dr. Saad received a personal invitation to serve the Royal Family in Saudi Arabia. It was a great opportunity as it allowed him to master his craft while helping children that are less fortunate. All of his peers looked to him for advice and treated him with great respect.

 

Dr. Saad is always working to accomplish something great. After returning home from Saudi Arabia, he began thinking of ways that he could create better surgical experiences for his patients. That’s when he created two devices, one of which is used on a regular basis. The Endoscope with irrigation and suction attachment is a great innovation to the traditional endoscope. Traditionally, the endoscope lens gets foggy from bodily fluids. Surgeons have to remove the endoscope to clean it to prepare it for reinsertion. Dr. Saad’s model has an attachment that lets surgeons spray clear liquid on the lens. The suction attachment then pulls away the fluid so that the surgeon can have an unobstructed view. The upgraded endoscope eliminates the need to remove the endoscope during a procedure. It saves time and effort when performing an endoscopy. The device has been used more than 2,000 times by Dr. Saad with great success. It is also effortless to create which means with time many surgeons will begin to use it.
