He attended the Cairo University School of Medicine. He practiced in Egypt and Saudi Arabia before emigrating to the United States. He has also gone on medical missions to the West Bank and Jerusalem where he has performed complex surgeries for very poor children at no cost. He quickly became certified for general surgery and pediatric surgery by the American Board of Medical Specialties after moving to the US. He won a number of awards during his career including two in 2014. These were the Compassionate Doctor Recognition award the Patients’ Choice Award.
Doctors like Dr. Saad Saad use medical catheters during their surgeries. These are versatile tools which can be used for a number of different purposes. These are a tube which is either inserted into the body during a surgery or otherwise used to treat a medical condition. They can be used to drain fluids during a surgery or gases. Some are put in the patient temporarily while other surgeries call for them to be permanently inserted.
One issue with medical catheters is that doctors need to keep track of where they are in the patient’s body using X-rays. The problem is that while a few X-rays are ok having a bunch of them can be a big problem due to radiation exposure. In order to eliminate this issue, Dr. Saad Saad created an electronic device which eliminates the need for X-rays. His device detects the medical catheter like a metal detector would. Using Dr. Saad Saad’s device a doctor just sweeps the patient’s body and it detects exactly where the catheter is.
Even better, Dr. Saad Saad’s device is small so it is very practical for a doctor to carry one around in their pocket. His device isn’t yet in wide use but that may soon change. He says it is complicated to manufacture but a big healthcare company in Utah showed a great deal of interest after he did a presentation and explained the benefits.
