His primary goal in his career is to provide care to people who need it.
Dr. Sameer Jejurikar’s career
The idea of being a surgeon developed since he was still young. He loved doing things with his hands, and when he went to high school, he chose the classes that could make him a physician. He challenged himself to perform well in those subjects. He later joined the Michigan Medical School where he gained massive experience in surgery. He then worked with Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute, an institution with best plastic surgeons in the country.
Dr. Sameer Jejurikar describes his day including performing general surgeries and meeting with patients to talk about what kind of operations they want and following them up after the surgery is done. He feels productive when he is performing surgeries, giving people the appearances, they have lived to desire.
His ideas are put into action when a patient outlines what kind of surgery he or she wants to be performed. Once he has all the details, he delivers the surgery. His main aim is to make the patient happy by giving them the appearance that makes them happy. His goal is to provide patients with a chance to express their action of interest and offer quality customer service. He believes in treating his office as a home and his employees and patients as family.
Surgery is difficult. It’s not the exact science we like to think of it as. The parts of the human body are often very small and don’t sit in the exact same place in everyone. For pediatric surgeons these problems are worse. Often a child doesn’t have the experience to describe a pain or feeling as succinctly as needed. This makes surgery on children a unique specialty.
Doctor Saad Saad, born in Palestine but raised in Kuwait, is a world-renown pediatric surgeon. He once performed an operation on the youngest child to be brought in with an aneurysm that was broadcast to experts across the world. His opinions on whether or not to operate are widely sought after in pediatric medicine. He has served as Medical Director and Surgeon-in-Chief before as well as spending a decade as the personal pediatric surgeon to the Royal family of Saudi Arabia. He received his education in Cairo, England and the United States.
As a surgeon operating on children Doctor Saad Saad was, prior to his retirement, always seeking new methods and equipment to make the surgeries easier for doctor and patient alike. During his career he patented two main techniques and new equipment.
The first is not widely used due to some technical limitations. He developed a new type of catheter tip that can be found with great precision, as opposed to the guesswork method usually used. The catheter tip gives off a specific signal that can be detected with a second device used outside the patient. These two devices used in conjunction act as a metal detector analogy for the catheter tip inside the patient. This way the process of inserting the catheter is faster and much more precise.
This device uses expensive electronics that are not yet cost-effective to use for hospitals. There has been some tech sector interest in the idea and a firm in Utah has recently attained the rights to develop the device, hopefully at a low cost.
His second device is a device and technique widely used today. While using endoscopes on his patients Dr. Saad was bothered how much wasted time for the doctor and unnecessary irritation for the patient was involved when suction was needed. The endoscope would need to removed, a suction device inserted and removed and then the endoscope needed to be put back in. It was inefficient and could cause irritation for the patient. So Dr. Saad developed a small, dual-purpose device that could perform both functions. It is basically an 16endoscope with a small, separated tube for suction. the endoscope camera is also self-cleaning, meaning the procedure is much faster and easier on the patient where this device is in use.
