Dr. Saad Saad, From Refugee to an Accomplished Pediatric Surgeon

Dr. Saad Saad had a long and successful 47-year career as a pediatric surgeon in which he served his community by operating on thousands of children who required surgery. Before retiring, Dr. Saad Saad enjoyed holding the position of co-director and surgeon-in-chief of K Hovnanian Children Hospital.

As was the case with so many other native Palestinians, his family was forced to relocate and seek a home in a foreign country. Dr. Saad Saad’s family became refugees living in the country of Kuwait.

In Kuwait, two fateful events served to raise him from his status as a refugee to a pediatric surgeon. First, while in elementary school, Dr. Saad Saad’s father taught him that a high level of education is a must if he wants to be respected by people.

Second, a faithful heatstroke convinced Dr. Saad Saad not to pursue a career working as a laborer outdoor but rather find one that would offer him an air-conditioned environment in which to work. In view of the fact that air conditioners were installed in emergency rooms, Dr. Saad Saad resolved to becoming a pediatric surgeon.

Doctor Saad Saad’s contributions to pediatric surgery includes making it easier and safer for doctors to perform procedures on children; he developed several new procedures.

This new procedure not only spared a second incision for over two thousand children but also precluded the possibility of complication that may have resulted had the second incision not have been eliminated. Besides developing new procedures, Dr. Saad Saad also conceived of two enhancement to existent medical devices.

The first enhancement was made to the endoscope, which was an instrument used by Dr. Saad Saad in the detection of foreign objects blocking the trachea or esophagus of a child.
