Dr. Saad Saad is a prominent surgeon who has performed countless complex pediatric operations during his long and storied career. It has always been the way of Dr. Saad to make the best use of all available tools to him while also working to discover new and innovative ways to improve pediatric surgical techniques and procedures.
Dr. Saad has developed many innovative additions to the world of pediatric surgery and has performed in his chosen craft in the United States and abroad. Dr. Saad has patented two inventions in his life that have greatly improved pediatric surgical procedures.
Catheter Outfitted With Electromagnetic ID Device
Medical catheters are inserted into the body and used to aid with medical treatments and surgical procedures. Catheters can be used to provide better access to instruments used to perform surgeries, drain fluids and gases from the body, and other vital functions.
The positioning of a catheter when being used to perform medical procedures is of utmost importance and it is common for X-rays to be used to determine the exact point of insertion. This can be problematic due to the health risks posed by repeated exposure to radiation resulting from multiple X-rays. MRIs can also be used for this purpose but the machines are bulky and stationary which make them impractical to use.
Dr. Saad Saad came up with the perfect solution. The device Dr. Saad created is capable of locating the catheter without a scan of any kind needing to be taken of the body. Dr. Saad’s catheter uses electromagnetic energy to identify the exact location of the catheter in the body.
The tip of the catheter designed by Dr. Saad comes with magnetic material in its coil and the walls of the catheter house two wires. Doctors can use a locating device that communicates with the magnetic material and helps the physician determine the exact location of the catheter.
Endoscope Equipped With Suction And Irrigation Capabilities
The second invention that was patented by Dr. Saad was intended to improve the operational capabilities of the endoscope. The endoscope is a device used to gain a view inside a patient’s body while a surgery or other procedure is being performed.
Liquids produced within the body can clog the lens of the endoscope and make it difficult for the physician to gain the view he needs to complete a procedure. Dr. Saad has remedied this issue by converting the anti-fog port of the device to a mechanism that provides irrigation and suction of the lens. In this way, doctors do not have to stop a procedure to withdraw the endoscope from the patient, clean it manually, and then reinsert the device.
