Dr. Saad Saad Is Making Surgeons’ Lives Easier With These Two Inventions

Dr. Saad Saad is a successful pediatric surgeon who has performed countless operations over the years. Over the years he has learned plenty about what is needed in the medical community, and with this knowledge, he has decided to invent tools that are very useful. One of his latest inventions is related to medical catheters, which are tubes that are inserted into people’s body that serve a variety of different purposes. Surgeons have to know that the catheter they insert into a person’s body is going to right location. Generally speaking, this is done through X-rays or MRI’s, the latter which is rarely used. The problem with X-rays are that they can damage a person if they are exposed to them frequently due to radiation.


Dr. Saad Saad invented a better way to find out the location of a catheter that will not cause harm to a person, and this is the catheter with integral electromagnetic location identification device. The catheter, itself, has magnetic material in its tip and there are two wires inside of the walls of the catheter. This enables doctors to use a device that can scan a person’s body from the outside that finds where the catheter is by being able to detect the magnetic material inside the tip. A light goes off on the device when it is directly on top of where the catheter is, which makes it a metal detector of sorts. This allows doctors to avoid using guide wires, which can break off inside of patients. While manufacturing of the device hasn’t begun due to how complicated it is to make, there is a Utah-based company that is looking into getting it done. Dr. Saad Saad has also invented a suction-irrigation device that solves the problem of endoscopes getting fogged up when they are placed in the human body. Instead of needing to use another device before having to place the endoscope back into a person, the suction-irrigation device allows doctors to suck the liquid away while placing the endoscope in the body.


Dr. Saad Saad is a pediatric surgeon and doctor who practices in Eatontown, NJ, as well as Forked River. He has over four decades of experience and along with being a pediatric surgeon, he is also well-known as a general surgeon. He has worked hard to help children in the United States as well as overseas in the Middle East. During his time as a surgeon he has been a part of 12 different Medical Missions withing the United States, the West Bank, and Jerusalem where he has performed complicated surgeries on children who are in poverty. Recently, Dr. Saad Saad was affiliated with Monmouth Medical Center, Clara Mass Medical Center, and Jersey Shore University Medical Center. Learn more:
