Dr. Saad Saad, MD, FAAP was raised in the poor neighborhoods of Kuwait with his eight siblings. He attended the Cairo University in Egypt graduating with a medical degree in pediatrics/thoracic surgery and graduated as a salutatorian. Dr. Saad finished his internship in England before he moved to the United States where he completed his residency and became certified by the USA Board of Pediatric Surgery. Dr. Saad has been practicing for more than 40 years performing surgery on children and teens in the field of circumcisions, repairing hernia conditions, appendectomies, gastrointestinal problems, and a myriad of other medical conditions.
Currently, Dr. Saad Saad has retired as a co-Medical Director and Chief Surgeon from New Jersey’s K. Hovanian Childrens Hospital. Dr. Saad’s skills with medical technology and surgical adeptness, enabled him to create and design two innovative devices that will help surgical physicians in the operating room and save on costly procedures for patients. As a General Surgeon, Dr. Saad believed that improved technology would help surgeons with their medical procedures. The technology would also better find ways to reduce the pain and medical liability that his young patients could be confronted with.
Dr. Saad created two patented inventions, one of which uses electromagnetic energy to accurately locate and follow catheter surgeries and the second which helps clear endoscopes used within the human body. The electromagnetic catheter designed device is an original creation that eliminates the need for redundant x-rays, MRIs, and body scans to find internal catheters. Dr. Saad’s catheter guided device helps doctors, especially in emergencies, find a patient’s catheter without trying to follow its guide wires which causes time that affects a patient’s life.

Dr. Saad’s endoscope device suctions away any body fluids and irrigates the lenses of an endoscope which can impede the vision of a physician during surgery. Endoscope surgery is associated with correcting issues involving the lungs, the esophagus, and the large intestine. Dr. Saad is seeking a manufacturer who will mass produce these amazing devices so that they are widely available to all surgeons. He is in hopeful discussions with a Utah company to achieve this end. Dr. Saad wanted to create devices that would save both patients and doctors needless hours in the operating room.
Dr. Saad Saad has a heart for people which is why he has received several humanitarian and medical awards. With his surgical experience and skills, he has chosen to perform free surgical procedures throughout the United States, plus he travels to Jerusalem and the West Bank to perform free medical procedures on low-income children. Dr. Saad is also affiliated with other Jersey Shore medical centers like Clara Maass Medical Center, Monmouth Medical Center, and the Jersey Shore University Medical Center.
