Dr. Saad Saad has been practicing pediatric surgery for over four decades and has always been on the lookout for ways to make procedures and methods used today more efficient. Over the years he has advocated for his patients and sought new ways to ease their pain, and he has now created ways to do this. He holds patents for two medical inventions and has used his knowledge and experience to help, both, younger adults and kids with their health in the United States and overseas.
Dr. Saad Saad knows that it is highly important for catheters to be placed in the correct place inside of the body for them to be effective. X-rays are usually performed to ensure that this takes place, but since multiple x-rays expose patients to radiation over and over and MRI machines are too large to be moved around easily for these procedures, something else would be more practical. This spurred Dr. Saad Saad on to invent the electromagnetic location identification device, which uses electromagnetic energy to find the catheter in the body. The device works well because catheters have tips that contain magnetic material. Generally speaking, the device he invented works something similar to a metal detector.
Dr. Saad Saad is happy that he invented something that will allow patients to avoid the radiation from X-rays. His invention is small enough so doctors can use it in emergency situations, and it keeps metal wires that are used to track catheters from being broken off into patients’ bodies. What’s too bad about all of this is that his invention is not being used by many at this time due to difficulties with manufacturing it. This will be changing soon; however, as there is a company in the United States who is looking to be the first to manufacture this brilliant invention. Dr. Saad Saad’s second invention will help to improve how endoscopes are used, and he is more than happy to have been able to create the kinds of inventions that will make his patients’ lives easier.
Dr. Saad Saad was born in Palestine and came to the United States more than four decades ago. He studied at Cairo University in Egypt where he received his medical degree after graduating with honors and completed his residency in pediatric surgery and surgery, which enabled him to be USA Board Certified. Before he retired, he practiced as a surgeon in Eatontown, New Jersey as well as a spread of other hospitals in the same area, such as, Long Branch Campus, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, and Monmouth Medical Center. He works hard for his patients and cares deeply about their well being, and to get them the best care, he accepts many different kinds of health insurance.
