For the past four decades, Dr. Saad Saad has made a name for himself thanks to the myriads of intricate pediatric surgeries that he has successfully performed on kids across all ages. Besides these surgeries, the pediatric surgeon boasts a lot of accomplishments to his name which we will touch on later.
How did he end up here?
However, like any other successful person, Dr. Saad did not just wake up knowing that he would one day be a successful pediatric surgeon. He grew up and went to school in the arid areas of Kuwait where he and his family lived. Initially, his dream was to follow in the footsteps of his elder brothers and become an engineer.
So what changed? Well according to a statement made by the doctor, he was more of an indoor rather than an outdoor person and seeing the high outdoor temperatures that his brothers had to endure while working, Dr. Saad opted out and chose medicine over engineering. And it was quite an exemplary decision because it is thanks to this turnaround that the prominent doctor is the epitome of success.
Even though he is a man with an excellent sense of humor, his long string of triumphant achievements are sufficient proof that the doctor also has his serious side of things. For instance, Dr. Saad has two major inventions patented to his name and which have helped transform and shape the world of surgical procedures making them more efficient.
As a surgeon who has practiced for more than four decades now, Dr. Saad Saad has performed countless surgeries and he has had his ups and downs. It is these downs that pushed him to come up with his two patented inventions. The first one being a catheter which unlike ordinary ones has a tracking mechanism. Thanks to such aspects, this catheter minimizes the need for X-rays. Dr. Saad Saad also invented the rigid endoscope with an anti-fog feature which offers surgeons and other medical practitioners using it a clear view during an endoscopy procedure thus minimizing errors. Thanks to his vast experience in medicine, Dr. Saad Saad was able to come up with this inventions and we look forward to seeing more in future.
A glance at his background
As mentioned earlier, the renowned pediatrician was born in Kuwait, Palestine. He is an alumnus of Cairo University and holds a degree in medicine and graduated with honors. Even though Dr. Saad and his siblings came from a humble background, it seems success is a character that runs in their bloodline because all of them are doing pretty well.
For instance, today two of his siblings are Ph.D. holders, three others are renowned surgeons, and another one is a teacher while two more hold MD’s in engineering. Dr. Saad’s big break came when he went to Lebanon and successfully completed the ECFMG exam which allowed him to come to the US for formal education. Since then, he has never looked back and forty-five years later, Dr. Saad is a household name in the health sector. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/saad-saad-524707159/
