Dr. Saad Saad isn’t just a pediatric surgeon, but he is an inventor as well. He invented the catheter with integral electromagnetic location identification device as well as a suction device that greatly improves the function of the endoscope.
His electromagnetic catheter device makes it possible to locate a catheter located in the body without the need for multiple x-rays or an MRI. It’s portable and likely to be used widely by doctors in the future, but for now, it is not widely used due to the fact that it is somewhat difficult and expensive to manufacture.
His other invention greatly improves the function of the endoscope by making it possible to see through the lens within the body despite the many fluids that tend to cause the lens to fog up normally. He invented a suction part that can be adapted to the endoscope and reduces the need for the surgeon to repeatedly have to take it out and put back into the body in order to clear the lens. This invention is widely used already including by Dr. Saad Saad himself, and it is easily manufactured as well. Learn more: https://chronicleweek.com/2018/04/dr-saad-saad-medical-missions/
