Dr.Saad Saad is a practicing pediatric and thoracic surgeon with lots of experience in the field. coming from Egypt, he is currently based in Eatontown, new jersey where he practices with a number of medical institutions like Monmouth ,Medical Center, Long branch campus and Jersey Shore University Center. He has over 20 years worth of experience in his field specializing in surgery, and for that reason is one of the most capable hands in the institutions mentioned above. In his surgeries, he normally repairs or removes bad tissues like cancers, repairing heart defects and other child related surgeries. Due to his spectacular work he has been recognised as an AAP Fellow and ACS Fellow. Some of his publications include the ‘ten-year review of groin laparoscopy in 1001 pediatric patients with clinical unilateral hernia’ and another one on focusing on the gastrointestinal tract. He had his education in the medical field from the university of Cairo, UMDNJ, American Academy of Pediatrics.
Carrying out thousands of operations in his time, he was always after modification and better ways to achieve success in his surgeries. Trying to upgrade the standard performance, he does as much to reduce risk and pain of the patients. He also went to Jerusalem at a point to help those in need and because of his drive for advancement, he currently has two medical inventions he holds patents too. One of which is the ‘Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device’. The invention contains a tube that could be inserted in the body to perform specific functions or aid surgeries. For accuracy, the surgeon should know where the catheter is placed by the help of an X-ray. The drawback is consecutive X-rays might put the patients at risk of exposure. To reduce such effects, an MRI scan is a more reasonable option but the reason why its not a viable option, is its robustness and fixed nature.
This is the problem Dr.Saad solved, by inventing a machine that locates catheters that might have been left in the body. The Device uses the electromagnetic energy to find the catheter. The catheter has a magnetic device that could help easier location of the material and Dr. Saad simply acted in his initiative. The machine searches for this material, and once its found, produces light on the device just like a metal detector. This greatly reduces the X-ray and MRI’s a patient might undergo, limiting the adverse effects of testing. This combats the time it takes to perform the test, so that in case of emergencies prompt location of the catheters will be a non-discussion.

The invention however has not been put into practice yet as the manufacturing process is quite complicated. The little intricacies involved have left manufacturers second guessing the techniques to be used in the process.
