When you hear about an accomplished pediatric surgeon, then think of Dr. Saad Saad. He is a doctor in the United States who has been performing the pediatric surgeries which are complex or just simple. He is a man who fluently speaks both Arabic and English language. In his career, he has been able to perform many surgeries that thousands in numbers. During his career life, and as a physician, Dr. Saad Saad tried to make some improvements to the methods and procedures that were existing. He constantly challenged the status quo by finding ways that he could reduce the risk and pain his clients were facing during the surgery.
This is what resulted in the doctor to make two device inventions and also made some development of new procedures. In his career of more than 40 years in service, he was able to perform successful complex surgeries on both patients residing inside or outside his community. He used to serve his community in the United States. He went for outside medical mission services outside the United State, where he went to Jerusalem eight times and West bank where he performed free complex surgeries to those young adults and poor children in those areas. He has been holding the patents for his inventions.
One of his devices is a medical catheter. This is a tube which can serve a wide range of functions. In a specific way, they can be inserted into the human body so that to treat medical conditions or even help during surgical procedures. They are able to offer access to the surgical instruments, drain fluids and gases, as well as perform other tasks but it will depend on the catheter type. Some of the catheter types can be left inside permanently or temporarily inside the body.
The unfortunate thing is that the catheter, a discovery from the doctor has not been implemented yet so that it can be used widely. So that a catheter can be manufactured, it requires a complex procedure and it is a discouragement to the manufacturer, therefore avoiding making it. The best thing is that there is a large company that is located in Utah and it has shown some interest in the device, so it looks like the device might be used by the doctors in future. After all, this is a practical solution that helps the doctors to make their life easier and keeping the patient in a safer manner.
The second invention meant for the doctors was endoscopes. It was meant for improvement. The device can be used to look inside the patient’s body. It is very helpful because it assists the surgeons to have that visual image of what is happening to the patient. It helps to avoid scanning or surgery to note the problem. It can view the stomach, throat, windpipe, colon and even bladder. Learn more: https://medium.com/@dr1saadsaad
