Necessity is the mother of invention, or so says Dr. Saad Saad. In his career as a pediatric surgeon, he realized that certain procedures could be made easier if the equipment was just a little bit different. This is why Dr. Saad Saad used his expertise in both surgery and engineering to create the equipment that he wanted to work while performing procedures on his patients. Before going into medicine, Dr. Saad Saad had plans to go into the field of engineering. His mind was changed when he realized that he wanted to work in air conditioning instead of the desert heat like his engineer older brothers.
Dr. Saad Saad has made several modifications to existing procedures to make them better and safer for the patients and the medical professionals involved, he has also created a few of his own. Two of his most notable creations are the patented trackable catheter and improved endoscope with built-in suction and irrigation. Both of these were created to improve upon procedures that he performed frequently as a pediatric surgeon. In fact, he has used both of these inventions during procedures himself and truly believes in their benefits. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/saad-saad-524707159/
Dr. Saad Saad was raised in Kuwait after becoming a refugee from the country of Palestine as a young child. While his family may have struggled financially, he and each one of his brothers and sisters did exceptionally well in their careers. The greatest mentor of his career was Dr. H Biemann Othersen who he met in South Carolina. One of the most important lessons he received during his training was that all children deserved to be treated well despite their backgrounds and upbringings. All children deserve proper medical care no matter how noble or humble their bloodline is. This is one of the reasons that Dr. Saad Saad dedicated so much of his time to medical missions in places like Jerusalem where the children do not have much access to quality medical care.
To become the success he is today, Dr. Saad Saad said he just insisted that it happened and would not accept failure as an option. As a refugee, he knew he had to succeed in his life. When he wants to achieve something, Dr. Saad Saad makes sure that he puts the time into research. Researching a topic properly is exceptionally important and helps in the process to achieve results. Another important piece of advice he has for success is to stay as organized as possible. Staying organized helps Dr. Saad Saad to stay efficient and helps him accomplish the tasks he has set out to do as he does not tend to procrastinate as much.
