Dr. Saad Saad specializes in the field of pediatric surgery. He has done thousands of these types of surgeries during his career. He strives to improve upon them by doing such things as reducing pain and risks for his patients. Dr. Saad works in the United States and in the area of the Holy Land including Jerusalem and the West Bank. He offers his surgical practice for free if the child is poor.
Dr. Saad has invented a catheter that uses electromagnetic technology. There is an external device that can electromagnetically pick up where the device is inside of the patient letting the doctor know exactly where the device is. This can help to avoid X-rays which expose people to radiation. MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging Machines are not portable and for this reason many times they are not practical to use. Dr. Saads device is similar in some ways to a medical detector. When the tip of the catheter is located a light comes on on the external device. This lets a doctor know that the catheter is now perpendicular to the device. This device is very practical to use. It works so well it can be used in Intensive Care Units in hospitals. Guide wires traditionally are used when first inserting catheters into a person’s body. This device can eliminate that procedure. Manufactures have not yet been producing this device on a large scale but a company in Utah has shown some interest in it so likely it will be readily available in the near future. It is a practical device that can make life easier for doctors and patients.
Dr. Saad has also come up with a new type of endoscope. They are a type of optical device that make it possible to look inside the body. They are good for examining one’s throat, windpipe, colon, bladder or stomach. The doctor can see inside the body without resorting to surgery or using a body scan. Liquids inside of the body can reduce the effectiveness of endoscopes. Dr. Saads endoscope is equipped with a suction-irrigation device that helps to address this problem and to help keep a clear view so that the problem inside of the patient can be seen clearly.
One part of the device provides a suction and the other a fluid that irrigates the area to help to wash away anything hindering the view. This can be useful especially in pediatrics. Children can and do swallow things like marbles or needles or they might get food stuck in their throat. This device helps to remove these products from the child. There is a familiar saying, “necessity is the mother of inventions.” This saying applies here. Learn more: https://about.me/ssaad/getstarted
