Iconic, Influential & Passionate: Dr. Saad Saad

Dr. Saad Saad is one of the more influential figures in pediatric surgery. Though this exceptional physician is enjoying his retirement these days, he has left a positive and progressive work history for all others to follow. Saad grew up mostly in Kuwait, but he was born in Palestine. He had seven siblings, a loving mother and hard working father who was a successful petroleum mechanic. Dr. Saad made a list of personal goals throughout his lifetime, and he was able to achieve them via hard work. His father actually installed hard work into each of his children.


Pediatric surgery is where Saad shined the brightest. In his youth, he first got started in the construction industry. Working outdoors in the Middle East is no joke. While at the job site, Saad blacked-out and was taken to the local hospital. During this point in time, most businesses didn’t even have air conditioning, but this hospital just so happened to posses it. This was the moment that would change his life forever. Saad decided to pursue a career in the medical field, but who knew that he would go on to become such a revered figure? Before he moved to the US, Saad interned in England, and he graduated from Cairo University while obtaining a Medical Doctorate in Pediatric Surgery. He was also ranked second his class. Thanks to his extensive knowledge in the subject at hand, Saad got a chance to work exclusively with Saudi Arabia’s royal family. In addition to that, he performed complicated surgeries at the affluent King Specialist Hospital.


This phenomenal pediatric surgeon even had more goals to accomplish when he relocated to America. Being a board-certified doctor was his major goal, and he definitely accomplished this goal by the mid ’80s. He has worked for over 40 years at various locations. More than 900 children have benefited from his surgical techniques, which has come from the removal of objects in the throat. These are very complex situations that takes time and diligence. This is why Dr. Saad Saad is so respected amongst his peers, and he has left a brilliant legacy that other aspiring surgeons should follow.
