DR. Saad Saad practice in Pediatric surgery

In the pediatric world, Dr Saad is among the gurus in matters concerning healthcare of minors. He is said to have gotten a rare opportunity to serve as a personal pediatric surgeon to the Saudi Royals. It was but a mere fact that he spoke both Arabic and English. Also, he was the only surgeon certified by the board in the US. This two reasons opened doors for the doctor to serve the Royal Family. The doctor resided in Riyadh with his family for four and a half years.


He was born in Palestine and raised in Kuwait. His educational accolades soar high as he attended Cairo University in Egypt. Here, he got his first degree in medicine 47 years ago. He came second in his class after achieving an honorary distinction. Two years later, he went into the United States where he got his residency in Surgery specifically Pediatric Surgery. Dr Saad was inducted into the certified board in Pediatric Surgery. Maintaining status at the board is vigorous activity. One has to undergo specialized training backed up by continuous surgical practice, and passing a difficult exam every ten years.


Dr Saad, however, passed this fete with ease as he is respected all over the pediatric sector. During his stay in Riyadh, he worked at the King Fiscal Specialist Hospital. The doctor performed the simplest to the most complicated surgeries. On his record, he performed surgery on the youngest infant diagnosed with an aneurysm. It was successful, and he has convinced a world-class magazine to publish the case details to educate. Dr Saad’s reputation was at utmost dignity; this saw him gain much respect among his peers and medical staff. The doctor came from a low-income family. Thus he also treated the poor with complex surgical operations.


Although the hospital was primarily for the Saudi Royals, other Royals came to seek treatment at the hospital. The doctor shares the same sentiments with his mentor and teacher, Dr H Biemann, of treating everyone equal and they should get equal opportunities. He has patented two inventions during his time as a surgeon. His goal was to improve traditional procedures making operations less risky and less painful. He created a device that locates a catheter in the body without using a body scanner. He also created an endoscope with a self-contained suction; the device clears fluid so that the surgeon can operate with much ease. Learn more: https://angel.co/saad-saad-2

He has initiated programs for Saudi medical students and established working connections for students to receive UK certification while in Saudi Arabia.
