Dr. Saad Saad

Born in the 1940’s in Palestine, Dr. Saad Saad has had a distinguished career as a pediatric surgeon. His family was relocated after the creation of the state of Israel when he was still very young to the West Bank region. Later on in the 1950’s, they relocated to Kuwait in the Middle East where his father worked as a skilled petroleum mechanic. This is where Dr. Saad Saad went to school. His father advised him that he needed to work hard in school and attain a high level of education so as to get out of his seemingly hopeless situation. The high temperatures in Kuwait made Dr. Saad make a life-changing decision to become a pediatric surgeon so as to work in a room with controlled temperature.

He advises that anybody can become whatever they want in life by putting in hard work citing his rise from a poor Palestinian refugee boy to a successful pediatric surgeon in America. He believes that one should not procrastinate what they can do to another day and this work ethic of good time management has greatly contributed to the success of his career. His determination saw him become the only United States Board Certified pediatric surgeon fluent in both English and Arabic which in turn landed him a job in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as a pediatric surgeon for the Saudi Royal family and specialist for the entire country.

On return to America, the doctor embarked on innovation to reduce pain for his patients. He developed the elimination of a second incision on a child’s body, a procedure that has been successfully implemented in more than 2000 children hence saving and improving their lives. He also invented an endoscope with a suction device attached to the end which has been used by many doctors to view stomach, lungs or esophagus of a patient without needing to remove it for cleaning.
