Dr. Saad Saad is one of the most well respected individuals in the medical community. He grew up in the middle east, but worked his way through school with a driving passion. The influence from everyone around him pushed him on the path of becoming a doctor. Presently, Dr. Saad Saad recently retired. That concluded a 47 year career. His impact on the community can still be felt far and wide. A recent article on the website Medical Daily Times discusses two inventions Dr. Saad Saad created.
During treatments, Medical catheters are commonly used for inserting something into the body to aid a procedure or surgery. It is extremely useful for adding external components directly into the body. However, there has always been a significant draw back in keeping track of its exact location. Doctors have used X-Rays, but those are harmful after frequent use. This is why Dr. Saad Saad added an integral electromagnetic location identification device to catheters. Now a doctor only needs to use an external scanning device to locate it. Unfortunately, the device is expensive and complex to produce. It still has not seen widespread use for this reason.
By comparison, his second invention has seen much more widespread success. It involves another common device called the Endoscope. They allow doctors to look way into the body use as the stomach or colon. However, our bodies are full of fluids, making the view obstructed sometimes. Dr. Saad Saad’s device adds a suction component to remove anything on the endoscope. This way doctors won’t have to remove the device for clearing, and instead save time with a more efficient operation procedure. Its simplicity and low cost nature has made the device a staple in numerous practices across the globe.
There are few doctors who can say they have been as successful as Dr. Saad Saad. His 47 years culminated into two inventions that will have a lasting effect for generations to come. Medical catheters and endoscopes are two of the most common kinds of devices in any practice, thus its only natural to expect to evolve with the newest techonolgy. Dr. Saad Saad saw the potential in that innovation, and landed the breakthrough for medical science. His career will no doubt inspire many for generations to come.
