Pediatric Surgeon Dr. Saad Saad

Dr. Saad Saad, is a pediatric surgeon raised in Kuwait and born in Palestine. Studying at Cairo University in Egypt he where he received his medical degree. Soon after graduating second in his class with honors, he came to the United States to do what he learned from Cairo University, completing his residency in pediatric surgery while developing new pediatric surgical procedures. In a 40 year span, Saad Saad has successfully performed thousands of surgeries on infants, young children, and even teenagers, whether they can afford the surgery or not. For example, Dr. Saad Saad has traveled to Jerusalem eight times on a medical mission to complete surgery on children that was too complex to be done locally, so he was willing to take out his time to save lives at no cost to the people. He took into account a statement from Abraham Lincoln that “We are all created equal in the eyes of God.” What that means to him being a surgeon is, all of the children were created with the same body parts that he works on, so there is no discrimination when it comes to the quality of life.


Some of his training that led to being able to perform these complex surgeries came from his mentor American Dr. H Biemann Othersen, the most accomplished pediatric surgeon in the United States. The most important lesson Dr. Saad Saad learned from his mentor was that, before you even perform surgery you must love to treat all children the same no matter where they are from, and no matter the background. His standard is always to be honest and kind, especially being aware that the child and the family dealing with such a difficult time are going to be more receptive and optimistic that the surgery will turn out well when you choose to carry yourself this way.


To this day, Saad Saad is consistently researching innovative ways to keep expanding his knowledge regarding pediatric surgery, making him even more valuable in the medical field.
