Dr. Saad’s decision to pursue the medical field started in 1965 when he was in high school in Kuwait. Growing up, he admired his two elder brother’s career in engineering but later changed his passions due to the hot weather in Kuwait. The summers in Kuwait would reach more than 110 degrees F hence discouraging young Saad ever to pursue engineering. He later opted to work in an indoor career which led him to choose to be a surgeon as he would work in an air-conditioned room.
Furthermore, Dr. Saad values, honesty, kindness, hard work of research, and treating all his children patients with equality. This and more values were inculcated to him by his mentor who is a pediatric surgeon as well and known as Dr. H Biemann Othersen.
