During his conference with IdeaMensch, Dr. Saad revealed how he become a surgeon and the most important aspects of his career. Let’s take a closer look at the life of this great surgeon and how he has treated children during his time as a surgeon.
Mr. Saad came from a large family. He was one of 8 children born by his parents. While Saad’s birthplace was Palestine, he was raised in the wealthy country of Kuwait. His siblings grew up to become engineers, surgeons and teachers. So, Saad was influenced early on to do something meaningful with his life.
Believe it or not, Dr. Saad was an engineer before he decided to become a surgeon. His decision to become an engineer was influenced by a few of his brothers who worked in this field. However, after working 2 years in the outdoors on various building and construction projects; Dr. Saad realized that the Middle Eastern heat was too much for him. So, he decided to become a surgeon.
After completing his medical degree in Cairo, he then completed his internship in England. Once his internship was over he immigrated to the United States to practice medicine. Once he arrived in the states he settled into the New Jersey area. Since that time, he has helped hundreds of children by performing routine and life saving surgeries on them.

Dr. Saad also took the time to prepare for each surgery to ensure that his young patient would receive the best care possible.
During his career, the surgeon made it a point to treat all children the same. Remember that Dr. Saad started to practice medicine in America when racial tensions was at its height. During the late 60s and early 70s it wasn’t uncommon for America’s views on minorities and inequality to impact various members of the medical field.
Thankfully, Mr. Saad was strongly advised by one of his mentors not to take this approach with treating patient. To this day, Dr. Saad wants the world to know that people are all the same regardless of the color of their skin. His life as a surgeon proved this point because everybody has the same type of human body in terms of their systems and how it functions.
