Dr. Saad Saad – recap article

Dr. Saad Saad was born in Palestine and was raised in Kuwait with seven brothers and sisters. He was raised in an impoverished neighborhood and this would greatly influence his belief later on in life as to how people should be treated. He chose to enter the field of medicine and earned his medical degree from Cairo University in Egypt and then completed his internship in England. Once finishing his internship in England, Dr. Saad Saad made the choice to immigrate to the United States of America to earn his board certification in pediatric surgery and he still calls the United States home.


While Dr. Saad Saad does still call the United States home, there have been many times that his gift of being able to complete complex surgeries has given him chances to serve abroad. His most notable position was for the royal family of Saudi Arabia and that was when he was offered a chance to be the personal pediatric surgeon for the royal family. Dr. Saad Saad happily accepted this offer and worked out of King Faisal Specialist Hospital while working for the royal family. This hospital did primarily serve the royal family; however, there were times when the hospital would offer services to poor families that had children with very complex problems and Dr. Saad Saad would always happily offer his services as he strongly believes, “that all children should be treated the same regardless of financial statues.” Dr. Saad Saad has also over the years completed medical missions in both the United States and Jerusalem in order to try to give to those who are less fortunate, much like he and his family were as he was growing up.


Over the years, Dr. Saad Saad has trained many pediatric surgeons and helped create a surgical residency program for Saudi students through the Royal College of Surgeons in England. Tips that he gave young surgeons that he helped train include to always double check what surgical procedure is being planned, always review the steps of the procedure that is being completed, and always get a good night sleep the night before taking on the task of completing a surgery.
