Dr Saad Saad is an internationally recognised pediatric surgeon who has done and performed multiple numbers of surgical procedures in his career. Being a physician, the doctor has always had the urge to improve the existing surgical systems as well as methods. These methods are entailing finding strategies that would reduce the pain inflicted during the procedures as well as the risk the patients faced when going under the knife. This has resulted to the doctor inventing two patented inventions as well as a varied number of surgical procedures to children. He has a track record of over four decades in the performance of complex surgical procedures on his patients in the country as well as abroad. These services entail medical excursions to Jerusalem.
His first patented invention is the Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device. It is the Patent designated number 5,727,553. Catheters are used with the assistance of surgeries such as the draining of gases as well as other fluids. The device of Dr Saad created his machine with the sole purpose of locating the precise area of the catheter without having to scan the body. It was revealed continuous scanning of the body through X-Rays can do more harm to the body than be of help in the diagnosis. This device uses electromagnetic energy in locating the catheter. The invention establishes it by showing a light when it is directly over it from the outside of the body of the patient.
In essence, the patented device works like a metal detector and does not harm the patient. This process also limits the use of MRI procedures and X-Rays which hurt the patient in the long run. Its small size is also advantageous as it can be used in case of emergency occurrences in the hospital when the time is a factor to be considered when saving the patient’s life.
The second patent involves the process and devices used for supplementing suction as well as the irrigation of an endoscope, rigid. This endoscope also maintains visual contact with the targeted area. This patent was assigned 5,725,478. This invention was developed to improve the practical use of endoscopes. Endoscopes as known are used in observing the digestive system as well as the windpipe. They provide a visual aspect of what is occurring in the body of the patient without the need of opening them up. Dr Saad’s invention solves the problem of fluids in the body that impede the visual aspect of the endoscope. The invention thus sucks up the liquid to enhance the vision. All this is done without removing the endoscope thus saves time.
Dr Saad reveals the reason for these inventions was to improve the performance of the doctors in the procedures they perform. This also entails the aspect of safety which is a fundamental factor. Another factor is the accuracy as well as speed which has been improved with the use of these inventions. Learn more: https://www.healthgrades.com/physician/dr-saad-saad-ys6d8
