The healthcare industry is continuously evolving. Thanks to innovative procedures and devices patients are able to achieve the healing and care that they need in a timely manner. Each innovation has room for improvement that opens the door to the next best thing. Dr. Saad Saad is a retired pediatric surgeon who is very familiar with that gesture. Dr. Saad has 47 years of experience in the field. He is affiliated with a number of hospitals in the Eatontown, New Jersey area. He attended Cairo University School of Medicine and graduated as salutatorian of his class. He is well known by his patients for the level of compassion he shows. Dr. Saad is a team player who believes that each child should be regarded as his own. That is why he upgraded two devices regularly used in the operating room. He wanted to enhance the surgical experiences of his patients as well as the surgeons.

Dr. Saad created upgraded models of the catheter and endoscope. Both devices serve a divine purpose in the ability to treat patients. However, certain aspects of each device were creating a problem for patients and surgeons. The traditional catheter, for example, is used to help surgeons perform surgical procedures. They can be used to drain fluids as well as gases from the patient’s body. The issue with the catheter is how it’s located. Traditionally, catheters are found with one or more X-rays. One X-ray doesn’t put the patient at risk for any harm. However, multiple X-rays can expose the patient to unsafe levels of radiation. Dr. Saad’s model eliminates the need for X-rays altogether. His catheter has wires inside that send an electromagnetic signal to the scanning device used to locate it. Surgeons merely scan the patient’s body until a light comes on indicating that the external device and the catheter are directly aligned.

Dr. Saad’s other invention is the Endoscope that has an irrigation and suction attachment. When performing an endoscopy, surgeons have to remove the endoscope to clean it each time the lens becomes hazy. The process takes a lot of time and effort. It is natural for the lens to become foggy as the human body produces fluids regularly. Dr. Saad’s model diminishes the need to remove the endoscope until the procedure is finished. As the lens becomes hazy, surgeons can spray clear liquid and suction the fluid out. It is a great invention and has been used many times successfully by Dr. Saad. Another interesting fact about the endoscope is that it can be easily obtained by many practices because it does not cost very much to make. Dr. Saad has made a difference for patients and surgeons all over the world.Learn more:
