Pediatric surgeons are jacks of all trades. They do not specialize in a specific part of the body, but instead a specific type of person. Making the job of a pediatric surgeon even more difficult is the fact that children’s bodies are smaller than an adult’s. Tools used during routine surgical procedures cannot always be used on children due to their size.
This does not stop surgeons instead it drives innovation. These innovations do not just impact the pediatric field of medicine, but surgery as a whole. Dr. Saad Saad has done just that with his inventions. In doing so, he has saved children from the Western hemisphere to the West Bank.
One such life saving invention is the Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device. This piece of equipment allows surgeons to efficiently insert and subsequently locate a catheter without using potentially dangerous metal guide wires or subjecting the patient to radiation again and again.
The catheter can be easily located inside the patient when used in conjunction with an external location device. The location device is a small hand held piece of equipment that illuminates when passing over the exact location of the catheter. The size and accuracy of the technology makes it easy to move and perfect for emergent use in facilities such as a NICU.

Another invention of Dr. Saad Saad is a rigid endoscope with built in irrigation and suction. This upgraded endoscope allows surgeons to irrigate and suction delicate tissues within the body without ever removing the device. Normally the endoscope would need to be removed and another device would have to be inserted if a surgeon needed to use suction or irrigation.
The process of removing the endoscope, irrigating or suctioning the body, and inserting the endoscope again lengthens procedures. The use of Dr. Saad Saad’s device shortens procedures thus shortening the amount of time a patient is under general anesthesia.
Dr. Saad Saad’s inventions are in use by doctors all over the world. His pioneering spirit is driving forward not only the field of pediatric surgery but surgery in general. The use of his technology has made surgical procedures safer and more efficient.
