The health care industry is tricky and full of challenges and inventions yet to be realized. However, one man, Dr. Saad, a pediatric surgeon stuck to his path until he saw his dreams of wanting to improve medical procedures and methods come to life. The man has the interests of the patients at heart and far from being compassionate, he empathized with them and always wanted to come up with procedures that are less painful and with little to no risks.
He has a rich experience of over four decades. He has diligently and passionately saved lives in the U.S including the young and old in Holyland, not to mention the four Medical Missions he has been a part of in the country and eight in Jerusalem. At the West Bank, Dr. Saad during a mission performed complex surgeries on poor kids for free. Lucky for him, he holds patents for his inventions.
Dr. Saad graduated with a medical degree from Cairo University School of Medicine in 1971 and has been in practice for a better half of his years. Apart from specializing in pediatric surgery, he also performs thoracic surgery and is among the 36 and 26 doctors at Jersey Shore University Medical Center and Monmouth Medical Center, Long Branch Campus respectively who specializes in the field.
One of his inventions is the Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device. The machine performs a wide array of functions one being the treatment of internal medical conditions in the body. The machine helps the catheter, which is typically tubes inserted into a patient’ body to drain gases or empty fluids. Depending on the role it performs, the machine may be used internally or externally.
Utilizing the principle of electromagnetic energy, Dr. Saad’s device features a location identifier that tells the position of the catheter, whose tip carries the magnetically pervious material inside the coil it is equipped with. As a result, a doctor can scan the outside of the patient’s body during the procedure.
The decision to come up with a machine that aids the catheter, according to Dr. Saad, was because of the bulkiness and the difficulty in moving of the MRI machines. His machine allows doctors to perform medical treatments without necessarily scanning the patient’s body. Patients, therefore, don’t need to undergo MRI and X-RAY scans before they are treated. The device, however, is yet to be widely adopted and implemented.
Methods and Apparatus for Providing Suction and/or Irrigation in a Rigid Endoscope While Maintaining Visual Contact with a Target Area Through the Endoscope is his second invention. The device aids the endoscope – an optical device used to examine the insides of a patient during surgery – by eliminating the fluids hindering the view during an operation.

Without having to remove the endoscope from the body and emptying the sucked fluids, Dr. Saad’s invention allows doctors to clear the view during endoscopy. He himself has performed lots of operations using the device and is a living testimony as to what the device can achieve.
Notably, Dr. Saad is embracing the technological changes in the medical industry, and he is glad to have come up with a solution that saves lives and is bound to revolutionize health care.
