As a retired physician, Dr. Saad Saad has had a mindset to work and invent new methods to ameliorate on traditional medical-related methodologies and procedures. Dr. Saad Saad regularly worked to challenge the status quo to reduce severe risk and pain that his patients have faced over his 40 plus years in medicine. Because of Dr. Saad Saad’s drive to innovate and master his medical craft over the decades, Saad designed and developed new surgical procedures relating to pediatric surgeries and patented two inventions.
One of Dr. Saad’s inventions worked by locating a catheter inside the body of his patient without any scanning machine being used. Dr. Saad also created another device. This one was an endoscope that had a suction that cleared enough fluid so that the surgeon had a view of the surgical areas. By patenting these two inventions, Dr. Saad helped his fellow doctors to prevent any complications with these procedures by having a safe, efficient method.
Besides being an impressive innovator, Dr. Saad Saad has done many pro bono operations on many needy children from Palestine, West Bank, and other Arab countries. In 2002, Dr. Saad chose to partner with the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF). The PCRF had reached out to Dr. Saad Saad to help Arab children who were from low-income families that needed advanced surgeries. Dr. Saad Saad accepted PCRF’s request to help children in 2002. He was able to put his impressive surgical skills and knowledge to work in many ways.
While residing in Saudi Arabia for almost five years, Dr. Saad Saad taught doctors in the Saudi Kingdom some of his advanced surgical methods and skillsets as part of a medical club that he was part of while living there. The rare opportunity that presented itself for Dr. Saad Saad to live in Saudi Arabia was well utilized in many ways. This opportunity in Saudi Arabia provided Dr. Saad many opportunities to work with the poor by providing kids with his very best surgical techniques.
In terms of Saad’s family background, he was born in Palestine, but due to the creation of Israel and the uprooting of many Arabs, Dr. Saad Saad and his family were pushed out of their homeland (West Bank) due to the political discourse in the late 1940s. Saad and his family ended up moving to Kuwait because his father accepted a job in the oil industry in the 1950s. There was an oil boom in certain Arab countries at that time.
Dr. Saad Saad remarked that he chose to be a doctor because he liked the cool, air-conditioned surgery rooms and mot the brutally hot Kuwaiti summers that his brothers, the engineers had to deal with. Learn more: https://www.doximity.com/pub/saad-saad-md
