Dr. Saad Saad: The Most Compassionate Pediatric Doctor the World Ever Had

It feels good reading something that a professional with an interesting history did. When you choose a career, it’s important to know it’s meant to help other people find a life worth living. People like Dr. Saad Saad who understood this concept have made it practical in their lives. As a highly-esteemed doctor, Saad always looks for opportunities to help those who need it. His compassionate heart has seen him serve some high-profile people such as the Saudi Royal family. When most people become qualified pediatric plastic surgeons like him, they have no time for the less fortunate in the community. Besides being able to speak English and Arabic, the Saudi Royal picked him because of his interminable passion for human health.


He lived with his family in the Riyadh city for about five years serving the Saudi Royal. His family found it a good experience even though time to go back to the United States wasn’t far. Saad’s background and education have played a great role in helping him become the pediatric expert he has become. Most people know he was raised up in Kuwait, but some don’t know he was born in Palestine. Saad studied in Egypt at Cairo University and graduated with an honors degree in medicine. Before he went for his residency in the United States, Saad first completed his internship program in England. One has to complete a residency to be board-certified.


Although different people remember Saad for his different contributions, most people can’t forget what he did to a young baby who had been diagnosed with an aneurysm. He performed a complicated surgery on the boy without asking a single dollar. Instead, he called some other surgeons to see how he was doing it and learn something from it. His main focus was not getting some money out of this, but helping the surgeons learn what they would do when such a scenario occurred someday. Most of the surgeons still remember the Saad Saad advice and they do their best to implement it.

He also organized some eight more medical missions in West Bank and Jerusalem. Many poor children have benefited from his medical career. Besides specializing in pediatric surgery, Dr. Saad Saad has also specialized in thoracic surgery. He has performed pediatric surgical procedures for more than 34 years now.
