Dr. Saad is a well-known medical pediatric surgeon with numerous engagements in surgical operations throughout his career. The entire dream began as a physician, where Dr. Saad had always wished for improved methods and procedures. Dr. Saad consistently challenged himself to invent ways that can minimize risk and pain that his patients faced. Following this, Dr. Saad has patent for two inventions and is continually developing other pediatric procedures. All this time, 40 years, he has done several complex pediatric surgeries to all kinds of patients. Dr. Saad community is based in United States. However, he has not been limited to work there since he has helped children and young adults in other continents and countries like Holyland, Four Missions in US, and eight Medical Missions located in Jerusalem. Dr. Saad has also handled free complex surgeries for poor children in the West Bank. He has invented two devices and holds the patents for both inventions.
One of Dr. Saad’s invention is the catheter that has integral electromagnetic location identification device. Talking of medical catheters, these tubes serve some functions and more specifically during the surgical procedures. They are inserted into the body to treat a medical condition and in other cases may be used to aid surgical operations. They are used to deliver some fluids or surgical instruments depending on their specifications. In some other cases, they can be left in the body either permanently or for a short time. Important to note is that for the catheter to be in the right position in the body, there must be a surgeon who can track its position. This is why during such times there were x-rays done to see its location. According to Dr. Saad, this is a hectic and a risky method since one gets exposure to some infections and radiation doses. To overcome this challenge, Dr. Saad invented the device that helps in locating the catheter without any need for a machine scan in the body of the patient. It works like a detector and allows the patient to be free from X-rays and any MRI scans in locating the catheter. The other advantage to this is that it is portable and small. Hence, doctors can use it in any emergency rooms.
The next invention was on the methods and the apparatus that provide suction and irrigation in a rigid endoscope, and still, maintain the visual contact to the area targeted through an endoscope. It intends to improve the usage of the endoscopes in the medical fraternity. These are optical devices that examine the body of the patient during a surgery. Some of the areas include the throat, bladder, stomach, and colon among others. According to Dr. Saad, the invented device would aid suction of these fluids without obstructing the view by the doctor. For more information, click here.
