Dr. Saad’s years of service and medical excellence
Dr. Saad grew up moving from one country to another. He was born in Kuwait to a family of eight siblings. While he was in high school, his family was dwelling in Kuwait where his father and two elder brothers were working as engineers in the oil fields. At first, he wanted to follow their footsteps and pursue an engineering career but later on, was overcome by the passion of being a surgeon. He went through the required pre-medical school training in Kuwait and later on moved to Egypt where he enrolled at the University of Cairo. He graduated at the top of his class with honors. Dr. Saad moved to the United Kingdom where he went through his medical internship.
Dr. Saad had to move yet again to Lebanon to take an exam that would allow him to practice in the United States. Then he decided to settle in the United States where he took up lectures and training programs in pediatric and general surgery. Upon completion, he achieved a certificate that allowed him to practice. He began practicing as a pediatric surgeon.
Saad was doing so well in his career in the United States until he realized that his motherland Palestine was suffering due to an inadequacy of doctors. He made the tough decision to begin working with the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund. The foundation had reached out to him on several occasions to assist in performing complex surgeries on children. He began going on medical missions in the country where he helped so many children from low-income families. He also made a point to train other Palestine doctors so that they can be able to help the children and the general public as well.
Early in his career, Dr. Saad was contracted to work for the Saudi Arabia Royal family as a physician since he was one of the few Arabic speaking pediatric surgeons in the United States at the time. Dr. Saad has also invented some devices used in surgeries like the magnetic medical catheter to which he holds a patent. He has been extensive in his research on ways to reduce pain during operations as well. Learn more: https://about.me/ssaad/getstarted
