Dr. Saad Saad is a highly respected New Jersey pediatric surgeon who has been performing surgeries since the early 1970s. He is always researching better ways of going about surgery including making improvements to the tools that are used. The goal is to treat patients better, reduce pain, and help them heal faster. He has patented two of his inventions and has revolutionized by improving the surgical techniques he uses. He is often brought in during highly complex surgeries which can take hours to successfully complete.
His first patent was on an improved medical catheter. These devices are very useful and served a number of purposes. They are often used to vent fluids and/or gasses and can be left inside the body to treat some conditions. The one problem with this is that their location needs to be kept track of when this occurs. Dr. Saad Saad says that surgeons do this by using X-rays. While an X-ray now and then is pretty harmless having a lot of them performed, such as to keep track of a medical catheter, can be an issue due to how much radiation the patient is exposed to.
Dr. Saad Saad said this can be circumvented by using an MRI machine but the problem with those is that they are quite big and they can’t be moved. This makes them not all that practical to use. His solution was to integrate an electromagnetic location identifier into the medical catheter. With this the surgeon can just scan the body of the patient with a device that doesn’t involve radiation. He is presently working with a medical device company in Utah which is interested in making this medical catheter on a widescale basis.
His other invention is an improvement on endoscopes. These are used by surgeons to see what they are doing during surgery inside their patient. The problem is they fog up a lot due to the patient’s body heat. There is an anti-fogging port but the surgeon still has to remove the endoscope and put in a suction tube to remove fluids. To solve this he improved the endoscope so that it includes the suction device so that devices don’t have to be put in and taken out of the patient all the time during surgeries.
