Dr. Saad Saad is a well-know pediatric surgeon. He has held his medical degree for 47 years since earning his degree from the prestigious Cairo University in Egypt. The man learned much about the field in that school where he was able to graduate with honors earning scores that propelled him to be the second highest in this class.
Saad decided to complete his internship in England before deciding to immigrate to the United States of America. England was very different from his home country but it was an exciting two years. He learned a lot about the culture and how enriching it could be to be around other people, which started to make the US a lot more enticing since it is known to some as a melting pot of cultures.
He finished up additional studies when he made it to America to become a fully USA Board Certified Pediatric Surgeon. It is no surprise that Dr. Saad has gotten far in life since education has always been a major aspect of his life. He sat down for an interview and talked about his life.
One thing he mentioned was that he comes from a family of eight children. Every child has focused on education one way or another. He mentioned that three of the siblings are surgeons and two are doctors. Two of the other siblings are engineers and one focused on teaching.
Dr. Saad said he teached his children about the importance of education, which may have encouraged two of them to become surgeons like their father. Another child became a lawyer and the other is an nurse. Perhaps this is the reason he tries to tell others who are interested in the field to seek education whenever possible.
Dr. Saad also mentioned how reaching his dreams of becoming a surgeon has given him the gift of a giving heart. He mentioned how he’s provided help to those who need the most by volunteering for Medical Missions in places like Jerusalem.
Saad cracked a smile when he pointed out that his dream of becoming a surgeon was birthed out his desire for an good air conditioned room. When he was a kid, he remembers suffering through really hot temperatures that exceeded 110 degrees. He wanted a job that would take him away from the heat, which is how he came to surgery.
There is no telling where a good idea may come from, but it is important to go full-speed ahead when the right idea touches your heart. Sure, the idea might have come from a silly place like wanting to escape the heat, but the power of that desire helped Dr. Saad get where he is now. He thinks everyone has the power to reach similar goals by following those silly desires.
