For over 40 years now, Dr. Saad Saad has been able to assist hundreds of young children to find hope in life. He has been able to do this in more than five countries that include the U.S, Saudi Arabia, West Bank, and Israel. In some occasions, Dr. Saad Saad has been sent on foreign missions to conduct complicated surgeries on young children free.
A part of Dr. Saad Saad that has made him stands out. As a pediatric surgeon, Saad was and is not under any obligation whatsoever to alleviate the pain his patients undergo prior to an operation. After all, he is a pediatric surgeon, not a radiographer or anything of the sort. But in all his years in the medical industry, Dr. Saad Saad has been observing how patients are subjected to various tests prior to a medical procedure. It is even worse when a patient goes through such pain when the part in question is an internal organ. The patient may be subjected to more agonizing tests that include x-rays (the basic), CT Scan, and even MRI. This is what Dr. Saad Saad sort to change through his two medical inventions.
The first of this invention is the Catheter With Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device with patent number 5, 727, 553. According to Dr. Saad Saad, catheters are very important tools in the field of medicine. They help so much in injecting certain necessary fluids into the body and remove harmful toxins in form of fluids. But Dr. Saad Saad understands how painful it can be to insert this important tool into the patient. Because of his understanding, he decided to do a research that can help cut or even eliminate the use of inserting a catheter into the body and the employment of ultrasound investigations. With this device locator, it is now easy to know the exact organ with a problem without necessarily using any test.

The second invention serves the same purpose. It is called the Methods and Apparatus For Providing Suction, And/Or Irrigation In A Rigid Endoscope While Maintaining Visual Contact With A Target Area Through The Endoscope (Patented as 5, 725, 478).
Doctors who examine the colon, the stomach, bladder, throat and the windpipe among other internal parts use endoscopes. With the use of endoscopes, there is the pain. Again, with the second invention by Dr. Saad Saad, it is possible to reduce the pain.
