Dr. Saad Saad is a pediatric surgeon. He currently is a surgeon out of Eatontown New Jersey. He earned his medical degree from Cairo University School of Medicine. Dr. Saad is affiliated with Jersey Shore Universtiy Medical Center and he is also affiliated with Monmouth Medical Center Long Beach Campus. He has dedicated his life to exploring new ways to make patients more comfortable during treatment and procedures. Dr. Saad has over forty years of medical practice and has performed surgeries both inside the United States and abroad. He has traveled on eight medical missions to Jerusalem and the West Bank during the course of his medical career. During these missions Dr. Saad provided free surgeries, some complex, on underprivileged children. He has also participated in four medical missions within the United States that also provided free medical treatment to poverty stricken children.
Over the course of Dr. Saad’s medical career he has diligently remained inquisitive while exploring new technologies and procedures. He has patented two medical inventions that have greatly benefited his patients. One of Dr. Saad’s inventions is a medical Catheter detection device. When patients have medical catheters installed they require testing such as x-rays or MRI’s to detect the exact location of the catheter. This is not practical for patients in poor and under developed areas. MRI machines and x-ray equipment is bulky and expensive. Dr. Saad recognized the need for a small device that would be able to locate a catheter. Essentially, Dr. Saad created a medical metal detector. The device works the same way as a metal detector does. The physician will sweep the locator over the patient’s body and it will light up when it reacts to the metal tip of the catheter.

The second device that Dr. Saad patented is a suction device for endoscopes. Endoscopic lenses often fog during procedures. The endoscope is guided down a patient’s throat and often the bodily fluids and the saliva will fog up the lens. This makes getting a clear view slightly difficult. Dr. Saad realized there had to be a better way to get a clearer look inside a patient. By creating a suction device on the end of the endoscope the fluids are removed. When the fluids are removed the lens does not fog.
The two patented devices that Dr. Saad created were inspired by his patients and his lifelong dedication to simplifying procedures and nurturing well-being. He continues to practice and invent in hopes to simplify more common procedures and provide quality care for sick children across the world.
