Dr. Saad Saad is a fully USA Board Certified Pediatric Surgeon, who has saved countless lives and helps make the lives of children better. He took some time to sit down to talk about his lustrous career and upbringing. One thing he revealed was that the path he took, which was later defined in life, started with his desire to work in an air conditioned location. When he was a child, he saw his engineer brothers working out in the field under the hot sun. Heat was something he simply does not like.
This desire to find a job that kept him out of the heat made him seek a profession in the medical field, especially in surgery. As a child, he thought his current profession ensured he would be indoors and comfortable. Of course, this is not the only reason he went to the prestigious Cairo University located in the heart of Egypt, where he graduated with some of the highest marks in his classroom when he received his medical degree 47 years ago.
Dr. Saad revealed that another reason he was so adamant about education was because of his parents and family. He is one of eight children, all of which graduated with a respectable degree. Two brothers are engineers and two became doctors. He is part of the three siblings who became surgeons. One decided to continue the family’s love for education by becoming a teacher.

Saad went to England to complete his internship, and it was an exciting two years. It was there where he really got the itch to take his travels further and travel all the way to the United States. He fell in love with the country and decided to make it his home just as many others have. The culture in the US was eclectic, interesting, and exciting to him. Still, he kept his roots intact and his love for education quite healthy. The famed surgeon mentioned his own children’s success in education. Two of his kids are now surgeons and another is a nurse. Another kid is a lawyer. These professions would make any father proud.
He said that he was extremely thankful for the opportunity to learn because it gave him the chance to teach his own children and help children who truly need help in impoverish countries like Jerusalem. He visits this regions through Medical Missions to provide care for free. Dr. Saad hopes more people pay attention to how important education is to a functioning society and hopes his interview highlights that.
