Dr. Saad Saad is a pediatric surgeon who has been working for most of his life to improve the tools and methods that his sector employs. He was born in Palestine during a time when the region was in turmoil. After the State of Israel’s creation, his family was forced to find a new home. That home ended up being in Kuwait, and it was their that he discovered his lifelong passion to serve as a surgeon. The area he lived in was very hot, and people there had two choices; work outside in the hot sun or get an education so they could work inside under air conditioning. Dr. Saad Saad ended up choosing the latter of these two, and his father supported his choice.
Dr. Saad Saad set out to get his education and ended up graduating from medical school, with honors. He learned, back then, to never wait for another day to get something done that he could do in the moment, and he still follows this rule. This has led him to maintaining an impeccable work ethic, and he quickly became a US Board Certified pediatric surgeon after coming to the country. Because he could speak, both, English and Arabic fluently, he was chosen to serve as the pediatric surgeon for the Saudi Royal Family during the mid 1980s. He was honored and took the position and served the family as their pediatric surgeon until 1989.
When Dr. Saad Saad came back to the U.S.A., he got to work on minimizing the pain as well the recovery time of the people that came to him for their surgical needs. It was him who created a procedure that eliminates the need to make a second incision on a the body of a child during surgeries. The motivation to create this procedure was born out of his compassion children. Thousands of children, now, have him to thank because they do not have to endure the pain of a second incision.
During an interview, Dr. Saad Saad was asked what advice he might offer his younger self. He commented that he would tell himself that it is not impossible to reach the goals that we set for ourselves. This is akin to the American saying that anything is possible if we set our mind to the task. The doctor is a strong believer in this sentiment and believes that a person from any background can achieve great things when they focus and work hard for it. He has been a source of inspiration and motivation for many people who are hoping to overcome their own struggles, and many of his innovations in the surgery industry are still being used to this day.
