During his 40-year career as a pediatric surgeon, Dr. Saad Saad has been able to conduct several complex surgeries on young children. Although many of these surgeries were conducted in the U.S, others took place in distance lands away from the United States.
It was evident that during the time Dr. Saad Saad was handling the surgeries, he was also keen to find ways that finally would help ease the pain children undergo during any form of surgery.
Saad Saad constantly asked questions on the medical procedures that were used on children and sort to find the best solution to the problem. Finally, when the right time came, he spent many years to study in a bid to find the best way to help alleviate the pain children faced when on operational tables.
At some point during his career, Dr. Saad Saad made several foreign volunteer missions to West Bank as well as Jerusalem. The aim was to perform complex surgical procedures on children whose parents could not meet any medical cost.
After several years of intense research, Dr. Saad Saad finally achieved what he wanted. He managed to come up with two medical devices that would finally be what the world needed to alleviate the pain young children go through when doctors operate on them. The first of these inventions is the Catheter With Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device. This device is patented under 5, 727, 553.
It is common practice for qualified medical practitioners to use catheters on patients who have been diagnosed with internal complications that require urgent drainage of fluids, toxins, and some harmful gases. However, the challenge is to locate the exact position inside the body of the patient, where the catheter will be placed. It is for this reason x-rays, CT Scans, and MRIs are done.
These examinations not only cause instant pain to the patient but also leave the patient with permanent negative effects of radiation. With Dr. Saad’s first invention, doctors do not need to do any examinations that require radiation.

When examining the throat, the windpipe, the bladder, the colon or even the stomach itself, doctors use endoscopes. Again, this second invention helps surgeons to avoid the use of any radiation examinations on their patients.
