Dr. Saad Saad was a Pediatric Surgeon-in-Chief

Dr. Saad Saad is a highly experienced pediatric surgeon who has operated on thousands of children from infants to teenagers. He recently discussed his success secrets with the Idea Mensch website.


Dr. Saad discovered he wanted to become a doctor while still in high school in Kuwait. His two older brothers were engineers who worked outside on construction sites and at first he wanted to follow in their footsteps, but later changed his mind. He wanted to be a doctor, and a surgeon, although he came from a poor family. This forced him to perform at his best while in Cairo Medical School, in Egypt, so he graduated with honors, as the salutatorian of his class, ranking second.


In his third year of medical school, he paid $99 for an airplane ticket to fly from Cairo to Beirut, Lebanon to take the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certification test. He passed the test, and that certification allowed him to go to the United States to receive further medical training after he completed medical school and finished his internship in England. Therefore, he says, paying that $99 was the best money he’s ever spent in his life. He is still living in the United States, in Eatonville, New Jersey.


Saad has not lost his appreciation for the value of the hard work he has done throughout his life, or his understanding that all people are alike. When asked about a book recommendation, he answered anything about Abraham Lincoln, who freed the slaves during the Civil War. And he adds that, as a surgeon, he knows all people are alike below their skin. No matter our race, creed or religion, we have the same heart, liver and stomachs.


And when asked what he would like to post on a giant billboard, he said he proved anybody can be a success in America if they do the work. He was just a poor Palestinian kid could become successful in this country, as he did, so could everyone. “Work hard and persevere.”


Saad grew up in Kuwait, one of eight children. He completed his residency in surgery and pediatric surgery with Dr. H. Biemann Othersen in Charleston, South Carolina. He describes Dr. Othersen as the greatest children’s surgeon in the country. Dr. Othersen taught him to be kind as well as hard-working, and to treat all children the same regardless of their family income, their race, their religion or their physical and mental abilities. Dr. Saad is Board Certified in Pediatric Surgery. He has developed many new pediatric surgical procedures and has patented two inventions.


He has been married for 42 years and has three children. Two of them are also surgeons, one is an ICU nurse, and one is a lawyer. Learn more: http://www.jerseyshoreuniversitymedicalcenter.com/jsumc/newseventsandclasses/pressreleases/Press-Release.cfm?customel_dataPageID_2021=495087
