Dr. Saad Saad has over 40 years of experience in the performance of complex pediatric surgeries on children of ages that range from infants to teens. He received his medical degree 47 years ago from the Cairo University School of Medicine. On eight occasions he has travelled to Jerusalem to provide necessary surgeries for children who come from poor families.
Dr. Saad Saad was born in Palestine and grew up in Kuwait where the summers can sometimes reach in excess of 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Due to this upbringing, Dr. Saad jokes that his reason for wanting to become a doctor was so that he could work in an air-conditioned room. Outside of his tremendous sense of humor though, he has a serious side that has led him to use his surgical skills to improve the lives of others. Dr. Saad’s family is highly successful in general. Of the eight siblings in his family, 3 have medical degrees and 2 others have PhDS.
In 1985, Dr. Saad Saad received an incredible opportunity that led him from the United States back to the Middle East. His outstanding reputation had garnered the attention of the royal family of Saudi Arabia and he was hired as the families personal surgeon. Dr. Saad Saad had the privilege of working on very prestigious clients and meeting people from all over the world during the four and a half year period that he worked for the royal family but he also had the chance to do amazing work with the poorer residents of Saudi Arabia. The royal family routinely opened their hospital doors to underprivileged children who were in need of surgical treatment and Dr. Saad was able to exercise his humanitarian leanings in helping to improve the lives of many children.
Dr. Saad Saad was busy on a daily basis with his surgical career and helping people but he also has other accomplishments to his credit. He saw while he was in Saudi Arabia that there was a huge need for a surgical residency program in the country and wanted to do what he could to help up and coming medical students. He was able to establish a critical working connection with the Royal College of Surgeons in England that allowed for Saudi medical students to receive certification for the U.K. while staying home in Saudi Arabia for their surgical studies.
Dr. Saad Saad has also focussed on doing whatever he can to improve existing techniques in the surgical field and has always been willing to challenge the standard practices that are in place if there is a way things could be done better. This led to a couple of major innovations in pediatric surgical procedures that he has patented. The first one is the catheter with tracking mechanism and the second one is the visual suction/irrigation rigid endoscope. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/saad-saad-524707159/
