During Dr. SaadSaad’s most recent interview, he discussed the lessons he learned throughout life and his career as a physician. He was born in Palestine and lost his home in the 1940s due to forced relocation. The State of Israel was being formed, and Palestinians had to involuntarily move to the West Bank. Fortunately, he moved to Kuwait with his family in the 1950s where his father instilled the importance of receiving an education in him. The desire to become a pediatric surgeon came about after he had a heat stroke from working outside at a work site. He immigrated to the United States in the 1960s where he pursued his dream of becoming a doctor and worked hard for his achievements. He believes that his childhood experiences gave him the passion to succeed as a physician.
When he began practicing medicine, he decided to improve the quality of surgery. He discovered methods that would decrease pain for patients and minimize recovery times. He invented a procedure that lowered the number of incisions during surgery and implemented it over 2,000 times. He is a firm believer in improving and increasing the livelihoods of children. He believes in making a difference in his field of practice and not just following what he learned in medical school.
Recently, Dr. SaadSaad retired after a 47-year career and is proud of his success. He contributes his determination to the lessons his father taught him as a child.
