Dr. Saad Saad grew up in Kuwait but he was born in Palestine. At first, he wanted to pursue the engineering profession just like his two elder brothers. However, in 1965, while he was still in high school, his lifelong ambition switched to a career in the medical field. This is simply because he did not want to work outside in the extremely hot summers that are in Kuwait. The doctor wanted a comfortable profession, where he would have air conditioning indoors. Therefore, being a doctor wasn’t enough for him; he needed to be a surgeon so that he would work inside an operating room with air conditioning. Although he ended up as a pediatric surgeon, the good doctor still uses his engineering skills in his many inventions.

In 1964, Dr. Saad traveled to Beirut to do an ECFMG exam while he was still in his third year of medical school in Egypt.

He then did his pediatric surgery and surgery residency in the country and he became a board-certified pediatric surgeon in America. During the mid-1980’s, the doctor had the opportunity of moving to Saudi Arabia to work for the royal family as a pediatric surgeon.
