Being a high achiever and seeing your goals to fruition is always something that a lot of people hope to achieve, but for someone like Dr. Saad Saad, being a high achiever is in his blood. One of eight children, Dr. Saad, was born in Palestine and went on to become one of the most well known pediatric surgeons in the entire world. Since a young age, he traveled around with his family, the first time is when the family moved to Kuwait while he was still a child. After completing his schooling, he decided to move to Egypt. He got admission into the University of Cairo and obtained a seat in the medical section of the University. After completing his initial medical degree, he left once again, this time, to head over to the UK.
His time spent in the UK was the beginning of his professional career as a doctor. He worked at one of London’s most prestigious institutions and learned under some of the most renowned doctors in the field. It was during this time that Dr. Saad realized that he had a keen interest in pediatrics and saw this as a viable route to take for his career. After finishing his residency program, he moved once again, this time, to the United States. This was the final place that Dr. Saad decided to settle down in and started conducting his practice here. After specializing in pediatric surgery, he began working at a number of notable hospitals in the country. Before retiring, he served as the Chief of Surgery at the K Hovnanian Children’s Hospital. He also served as the Medical Director of the company at one point in time.
When asked about his motivations to get into the medical field, Dr. Saad states that the decision to join the field came when he was still in school, and watched his older brothers who got into the field of construction and engineering. He saw that his brothers would have to work out in the sun, and he wanted a job that would allow him to spend all of his time indoors. Of course, his love for the medical field has grown since then, and now Dr. Saad is glad that he made that decision.
One of the other facets of medicine that Dr. Saad is heavily immersed in is in the field of medical research. Dr. Saad is considered to be an innovator in the medical field and has two surgical patients for procedures that he developed. Doctors all over the world are now implementing his techniques to perform surgeries on children.
Dr. Saad currently spends most of his time engaged in research and contributing to the medical field in whatever way he can. Learn more: https://doctor.webmd.com/doctor/saad-saad-md-3d5f8ce5-a764-4c86-b201-e50ec51cd7f2-overview
