Dr. Saad Saad – recap article

Necessity is the mother of invention and that is the motto of Dr. Saad Saad. He has followed this motto throughout his entire medical career. He has made his name by creating two of the most influential surgical inventions in recent years. He has made the process of surgery safer for patients and easier for doctors. The doctors that use his tools, and there are many, have all said they are very useful. Surgery would not be the same without Dr. Saad Saad. His inventions have made the process of scanning a patient’s body faster and less invasive. He has also made the use of an endoscope much more efficient. Doctors can get their jobs done in half the time. Learn more: https://about.me/ssaad/getstarted

 

The addition to the endoscope is perhaps the most ingenious invention by Dr. Saad Saad. He has attached a suction-irrigation tube to the endoscope so doctors can remove excess fluid from the body. Patients will sometimes have a buildup of fluid, because there is a lot of fluid present in the human body. This fluid will clog the camera on the endoscope and make it so that doctors cannot see what is going on. They will remove the endoscope and insert a suction tube to remove the fluid, then they have to replace the endoscope all over again. This is a repetitive process. By attaching the suction-irrigation tube to the endoscope, Dr. Saad Saad has made it so that doctors can view the fluid, suction it away, and find the problem the patient is experiencing, all without removing the endoscope. If the fluid is blocking a lot of the view, then the irrigation canal comes in handy. It can be used to flush away the extra fluid and then can be suctioned back out.

 

The catheter is another medical device Dr. Saad saad has made a modification to. Doctors usually have to locate the position of the catheter by using radiation from an X-ray or a massive MRI. The radiation is dangerous, and the MRI is so large that it cannot be moved. Dr. Saad Saad created a catheter that has a magnetic attachment on the tip. The electromagnetic waves can be detected by a small device that can be swept over that patient’s body. It’s as easy as using a metal detector on the beach! These inventions have changed the face of pediatric surgery. Dr. Saad Saad is an expert doctor with over 40 years of practice, and it shows.
