Dr. Saad Saad: Royal Physician

While Dr. Saad Saad may be best known in the medical community for the pediatric surgeries he has performed during his career, he is an inventor as well. He has always been interested in lessening the suffering that his patients and patients around the world have to experience while getting medical care. Dr. Saad Saad has been practicing medicine for more than 40 years and holds the belief that no child should be denied the best medical care possible because of their parents’ ability to pay. This is why he has volunteered a large amount of his time helping children around the world who would not have access to the type of medical care that he provides otherwise.

 

One of the most interesting inventions that Dr. Saad Saad has designed is an improvement on the typical endoscope equipment. Endoscopes are essentially a small camera on a long tube that is used to view inside certain parts of the body. Some of these include the windpipe, throat, stomach, colon, and bladder to name a few. They are very important pieces of equipment when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of many different kinds of illnesses and disorders.

 

Unfortunately, there are some problems with the equipment that Dr. Saad Saad sought out to improve upon. One of these problems is the fact that the camera on the end of the scope has a tendency to become fogged up by the various liquids and gasses that exist in the human body. When the camera become fogged, the view is obstructed and the medical professional  performing the procedure has to remove the endoscope in order to provide suction to the area being viewed. After suction is provided, the endoscope is placed back into the patient. Dr. Saad Saad’s invention removes the need for this by fitting a device that provides suction and irrigation onto the endoscope. This is done by converting the existing anti-fog port.

 

With Dr. Saad Saad’s invention, the person using the endoscope can remove the liquid that is obstructing the view without having to remove the endoscope or insert anything else. The device also allows them to irrigate the area to wash away any substances that are hindering the view of the camera.

Dr. Saad Saad may be retired from practicing medicine, but he achieved a great deal during his career. Not only did he serve patients in the United States, he also acted as the pediatric surgeon for the children of the Saudi Royal Family. This gave him and his family to live and work in Saudi Arabia where they were treated with the utmost respect from everyone involved.
