What makes Dr. Saad Saad unique from others is his ability to embrace expertise and innovation in his work. It is through dedication to work that he proved to the Saudi Royal Family, humanitarian groups and other medical professionals and that he was good at his job.

For the four decades that he was active in the industry, and successfully performed thousands of surgeries to children aged between 6 months and 14 years.

Dr. Saad Saad has worked for the ultra-rich in the society, but that has never made him ignore the plight of the poor. In 2002, he worked with a humanitarian group known as Palestine Children Relief Fund. PCFR is a non-profit organization that addresses the medical needs of poor Arabs children living in the Middle East.

This organization needed the assistance of a medical professional who would perform a surgery on a young child who had been shot in the West Bank. The child had received preliminary treatment in a local Israeli hospital, but the injuries were too complex and needed a professional with advanced knowledge. PCFR identified Dr. Saad Saad and asked him to perform that surgery.

Dr. Saad Saad found the child to be in a dire condition that needed immediate medical care. He had gunshot holes in his belly and as a result in the skin had burned and was eating away quickly. Dr. Saad Saad performed a 7-hour surgery that involved patching up the holes and treating and the internal injuries. The surgery went on successively, and the child recovered.

In 2010, there was another case of a girl from the West Bank who needed immediate medical care. At birth, the child’s intestines were exposed outside the body and that condition required to be treated by highly qualified medical professional.

Local doctors in Palestine could not manage to perform that surgery, and the girl through PCFR had to fly the girls to the United States for Dr. Saad Saad to perform that surgery. It took him 5 hours to cover up the exposed abdominal area, and the operation was completed successfully.

Again in 2013, Dr. Saad Saad through the intervention of PCRF performed surgery on a boy who was hit by a bomb in Gaza, paralyzing one of his legs. The boy needed nerve transplant surgery for the paralyzed leg to recover and the highly qualified doctor could only do such an operation.

Since Dr. Saad does not deal with nerves surgeries, he intervened and facilitated another qualified surgeon who performed the operation. After 11 months, the boy walked himself to the airport and was able to play soccer again.
