The Medical Inventions of Dr. Saad Saad

by JimHanson82 .

Pediatric surgeon Dr. Saad Saad is a graduate of the Cairo University School of Medicine. He completed his General Surgery Residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Board Certified in Pediatric and General Surgery Dr. Saad is qualified to perform a dozen surgical procedures.


In practice, for over four decades Dr. Saad Saad is currently affiliated with Eaton Town, NJ based Meridian Pediatric Surgical Associates. In 2014 Dr. Saad was honored with a Patients’ Choice Award and Compassionate Doctor Recognition. He has performed free surgeries on impoverished children in the US and the Middle East. Besides being a physician and surgeon, Dr. Saad is also a medical innovator.


Dr. Saad Saad holds a patent for a Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device. Because catheters are use-specific there are multiple types of catheters. In the simplest of terms, a catheter is a tube that is inserted into a patient’s body.


Catheters can be guided into place using a wire. The problem is that the wire can break off inside the patient resulting in complications. Imaging devices can be used to place catheters, but using an MRI machine during surgery is impractical and utilizing x-rays means bombarding the patient with radiation.


Dr. Saad’s solution was to invent a catheter with a built-in homing device. The detection device emits and an electromagnetic signal. The surgeon passes the detecting device over the patient until a light indicates that the catheter has been located.


As of this writing, the CIELID is not in production. The device’s practicality and safety benefits have caught the eye of an Iowa based producer of medical equipment.


Patent Number 5,725,478 was granted for an improved endoscope developed by Dr. Saad Saad. Dr. Saad’s scope is in production and sees extensive use. Endoscopy employs an illuminated flexible tube with a lens to explore the digestive tract. Endoscopes eliminate the need for exploratory surgery and utilizing imaging machinery.


Prior to Dr. Saad’s improvements, there were some drawbacks to using an endoscope. The human body is 60% water and where you have water and a lens in a warm environment you have condensation. When the doctor’s view became obstructed it would be necessary to remove the scope from the patient’s body, use a vacuum to purge the scope of the accumulated fluid, and reinsert the endoscope.


Dr. Saad replaced the anti-fog port on an endoscope with a suction/irrigation device. Now an endoscope can be cleared of liquid inside the body. This ability can shorten the time it takes to perform an endoscopy. For a pediatric surgeon like Dr. Saad, his modified endoscope has proven ideal for spotting and extracting the small items that are swallowed by children.

Turbocharging Investments? Ted Bauman Says Yes!

by JimHanson82 .

Ted Bauman, editorial director at Banyan Hill Publishing, recently posted an article on www.medium.com that may get investors anxious about their money. The article presents an investment opportunity premised on the dollar’s exchange rate against foreign currency and the prospect that it will inevitably weaken a bit. If you’re a risk-taking investor, Bauman’s article is just for you.

According to Bauman, the money is in assets that produce streams of income in future. Using shares as an example, he explains that when you buy foreign shares (shares in a foreign company) priced in local currency, they will be cheap because of the dollar’s stronger position. Now, take the decline of the dollar into account, say, 1 to 4 years from the time of purchase, it means that the shares will be worth more in dollars. This will provide you with extra income. If Bauman’s enthusiasm for the dollar’s declination concerns you, don’t be; it might not be such a bad thing after all. While the strength of the dollar is a manifestation of our economy’s strength, it also means locally manufactured products are expensive compared to those manufactured in other countries, which means fewer exports and more imports, and no one wants that.

Bauman’s exact goldmine is in land. According to the Banyan director, land is the ultimate revenue-producing asset. Land in foreign countries are relatively cheap because of the dollar’s strength. This means you can buy agricultural land easily. Furthermore, such land appreciates on an average of 2-5% every year. Add the annual return on investment and the value of appreciation for every year you hold such land and you have yourself a turbocharged investment. Bauman also asserts that such investment is very easy to make because of local industries that encourage foreign investment in the agricultural sector, so much that you might not have to physically go there. He will have a more detailed presentation on the same in The Bauman Letter, coming out early 2018.

Ted Bauman is the editor of The Bauman Letter and two other publications. He is an expert on low-risk investment, asset protection and international migration. His career mission is to help people obtain safe ways of growing their wealth. His articles are free and they offer investment advice as well as opportunities to readers. He is also a contributor on Stocktwits. Bauman lives with his family in Atlanta, Georgia.
