Dr. Saad Saad – Pediatric Surgeon
Dr. Saad Saad is from Palestine. Dr. Saad Saad has a medical degree from Cairo University. Dr. Saad Saad is a pediatric surgeon who has performed many surgeries while always looking for ways to improve procedures.
Dr. Saad Saad has patents for two medical inventions he has created. Dr. Saad has created a device that helps locates catheters that are left in the body most times. Surgeons need to know the catheters correct position in the body before a procedure can be started.
Typically an X-ray is done to locate the catheters. X-rays can also expose you to radiation if done more often. A Magnetic Resonance Imaging can also be done to locate catheters, but they are very large and not portable. Dr. Saad’s identification location device was created to help surgeons locate catheters without doing an X-ray or Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Manufacturers were discouraged about making Dr. Saad’s identification location device because it required procedures that were complicated, so the device was never implemented. There is a company in Utah who is interested in the identification location device, so the device could be used in the future. This device would be a major convenience for doctors and safe for patients. Learn more about Dr. Saad Saad: https://medium.com/@dr1saadsaad
Dr. Saad’s second medical invention is an improvement for the endoscopes. Endoscopes are used by doctors to look at the colon, bladder, throat, and stomach etc. Doctors are able to view what is going on within our bodies.
The issue with the endoscope is that the lens fogs up when it touches liquids etc in our bodies, and the doctors have a difficult time viewing what is going on inside the body. Dr. Saad has created a suction-irrigation device the helps keep the lens of the endoscope from fogging and making it difficult for doctors to view inside the body. The device suctions liquids from around the lens which helps doctors to perform procedures more quickly.

Doctors are using the suction-irrigation device along with the endoscopes that are used to look at large intestines, lungs, and esophagus. Dr. Saad has used the device many times to remove food that was stuck and marbles where a child has swallowed. More and more doctors are using the suction-irrigation device today which is inexpensive.
