Dr. Saad was a physician always searching for ways to improve existing procedures, methods and ways to reduce the pain and risk the patients had to face in surgeries. For more than 40 years Dr. Saad performed thousands of surgeries in and out of his community. Ranging from inside of the United States, but also in Jerusalem, and the West Bank.

Medical catheters are tubes that are inserted into the body which help surgeries and treat medical conditions, but surgeons have to be able to track the exact position of the catheter in order for it to be put in the right location. An X-ray is performed in order the see the catheter, and repeated X-rays can expose you to multiple doses of radiation. One of the inventions of Dr. Saad Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device (Patent Number 5,727,553) uses electromagnetic energy to determine the catheters location. The catheters has wires inside of its walls and permeable material inside of its tip inside the coil, and this allows the doctor to use the external locating device that sends signals to the catheters coil which lets the doctor know that the locating device is over the catheter.

Methods and Apparatus for Providing Suction and/or Irrigation in a Rigid Endoscope While Maintaining Visual Contact with a Target Area Through the Endoscope (Patent Number 5,725,478). Dr. Saad’s second invention that improved the use of endoscopes, which are devices used to look inside the bodies of patients without surgery or a body scan.
Our bodies produce liquid that make it hard for endoscopes, the liquids block the view, and fog up the endoscopes lens which blocks the view of the doctor looking through it. The suction-irrigation device addresses the problem. The endoscopes used the look into the lungs, esophagus, and large intestine are fitted with the suction-irrigation device which can be used to suck any liquid away that is obstructing the view of the doctor, without having to remove the endoscope and irrigation.
