While his business was still expanding, he bought out the competing companies until his firm employed dozens of workers. As his business was thriving, his success was halted when his town was stricken by the Hurricane Katrina. The distressing hurricane washed away many properties that belonged to Dr. Mark McKenna. This made him worry about the long-term prospect and sustainability of his real estate business.

Growing up in a local community in the U.S gave Dr. Saad Saad an opportunity to serve even the less fortunate. Dr. Saad has even volunteered to travel abroad to help conduct complex surgeries on children on several occasions.

This moved Dr. Saad to immerse himself into doing research that would help alleviate the pain his patients were going through during an operation. Hitherto, he has two inventions that will never cease to amaze the world.
According to Dr. Saad Saad, catheters are important tools during a medical procedure especially if there is need to conduct a suction of either gas or toxic fluids from the body. However, catheters come in handy with many problems causing patients a lot of pain when inserting. Dr. Saad Saad felt particularly pained when during his young years in the industry small children cry when a doctor inserts a catheter. Besides, in order to know where to locate the catheter several x-ray examinations have to be done on the patient. This exposes them to harmful radioactive elements. His invention has helped because you do not need to subject the patient to any machine scan.
Dr. Saad Saad has a second invention. This too helps alleviate the pain patients go through when they are subjected to numerous x-rays and CT scans. The aim of this second invention is to help improve how surgeons can use endoscopes when examining the bladder, colon, the stomach, throat, and the windpipe among other internal body parts.
