Dr. Saad Saad makes two inventions

Dr. Saad Saad has is a pediatric surgeon in New Jersey. He has been a pediatric surgeon for the past four decades. He has performed hundreds of operations in his career. His aim has always been to see people live a better life- free of medical problems. He has used his time in the career to push for cases which are personal to him. His intention has always been to lower the pain for the patients. To accomplish this mission. He had to come up with better ways of performing operations. Most of the surgical methods which were used in the industry would leave the patients in pain and would also risk the lives of the patients. Dr. Saad Saad was determined to change this situation by introducing a new way of doing things. He invented new surgical procedures as well as new devices.


A catheter is an instrument used in the surgical room for a number of functions. They are normally inserted into the body when performing medical operations. They can also be used for other purposes which include accessing surgical equipment and removing body fluids from the body among many other purposes. For some reasons, catheters can be left inside the body permanently or temporarily. When a catheter is inserted into the body, the surgeon needs to be able to track its position inside the body. Traditionally, a catheter is traced using an x-ray. Although there is nothing harmful with x-ray, continuous exposure to radiations many not be good for the body. The other option that is available is to use of MRI machine to scan the position of the catheter. With these two options, none is convenient. The MRI machine is bulky.


Dr. Saad Saad decided to remedy the situation by inventing a new device that will detect the position of the catheter without scanning. Patients will be able to avoid MRI and X-ray scans when a catheter has to be inserted into the body. Whenever there is no time to perform a scan, this device will come in handy and will enable surgeons to carry out their roles faster. Doctors no longer need to use guidewires to track the position in cases of emergency. The invention is yet to be implemented in large scale, but it is going to start soon.


The other invention that Dr. Saad Saad made is the invention of a suction system for an endoscope. In the realization that surgeon and doctors had a hard time examining internal parts of the body due to body fluids which hinder visibility. Dr. Saad created this suction system which will eliminate fluids in areas that are being examined by the doctors. With these inventions, Dr. Saad Saad has left a mark in the industry.  Learn more: http://medicaldailytimes.com/medical-inventions/life-saving-medical-inventions-dr-saad-saad/3570/
