Dr. Saad graduated from Cairo University School of Medicine, where he received his medical degree in 1971. He specialized in pediatric surgery and thoracic surgery. He has 46 of years’ experience and has performed complicated pediatric surgeries in both the United States and in Palestine. Dr. Saad has taken the time to train other doctors in his field. He started out by having the doctors watch him perform the surgeries. The new doctors would then go on to help in small ways, advancing on as they learned. By the end of their training, they were able to perform the surgeries on their own.
The PCRF (Palestine Children’s Relief Fund) approached Dr. Saad in 2002 with a request. The PCRF is a non-profit organization and was founded in 1991. They needed the doctors’ surgical expertise to help a young boy who had been injured by a gunshot wound to the abdomen. The injury left the child with damage to his stomach and to his internal organs. The injuries caused complications for the young child and he needed a more complicated surgery. The patient was located in the Middle East, so PCRF flew the patient out to the U.S. Dr. Saad performed the complicated surgery that took several hours.
The PCRF approached the doctor again with another request. A baby girl was born with her intestines on the outside of her body. Once again, PCRF flew the child to the U.S. so that Dr. Saad could perform surgery on her. Learn more: https://www.doximity.com/pub/saad-saad-md
