After graduating at Cairo University, Saad attended an internship in England. After finishing an internship, Dr. Saad moved to the United States where he took a residency in pediatric surgery.

 

Dr. Saad was lucky to get a job of serving the royal family in Saudi Arabia as a personal doctor in the 1980’s. The reason to why Mr. Saad received this job is because no other certified pediatric surgeon in the United States knew and spoke both Arabic and English fluently as he did. He settled at Riyadh and worked at King Specialist Hospital performing both minor and complicated surgeries. He built a good reputation at the hospital that made all staffs to respect him for being an experienced doctor.

 

Dr. Saad did not only succeed in performing surgical procedures, but he also contributed greatly toward creating and developing a surgical residency program.

During his career as a surgeon, he worked so hard to improve medical procedures to minimize or eliminate the pain that patients experienced. Dr. Saad determination enabled him to get patents for two inventions. He also managed to introduce new procedures in pediatric surgery.

 

One of Dr. Saad’s medical invention is Catheter with integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device. Medical catheters are tubes with the capabilities of serving many functions. Catheters are tubes that are put inside the body of a patient who needs to be treated medical conditions. These tubes also help the doctor to perform a surgical operation. There are those catheters which can be inserted into the body for a specified period and others permanently.

 

Surgeons before inserting catheters they ensure that it is possible to track the exact positions of the catheters without struggling. One way of tracking the correct position is by performing an X-ray. To avoid doses of radiation during the X-rays, Dr, Saad introduced a new device that assists surgeons to locate the catheter without having to scan the body of the patient by use of the X-rays.

 

Dr. Saad device finds the location of the catheter by the use of electromagnetic energy. Catheter consists of magnetic material on its tip and a pair of wires inside the walls. This enables the doctor to scan the patient’s body on the outside using an external locating device. This medical device detects metal inside the body of a patient.
