Some individuals work only to serve themselves and to line their pockets. This can be especially true in the medical field, where people hear that there is a lot of money to be made. Dr. Saad Saad is a pediatric surgeon who is cut from a different cloth. He didn’t enter into the field to just make money. He became a pediatric surgeon to help children and younger people. His talents in the field have been recognized by many different organizations and individuals. He even caught the eye of the Saudi Royal Family who brought him in to serve as their personal pediatric surgeon.
Dr. Saad Saad has done a lot for the medical industry during his many years of service. One of his greatest contributions has been two inventions that have helped to reduce the suffering of patients. His first invention has to do with the endoscope, which is a device that helps surgeons to take a closer look at what is going on inside of their patients’ bodies. He created a suction device that helps to remove gases and liquids, and it has replaced the outdated anti-fog port. He also invented a device that allows surgeons to find the location of catheters inside of the human body. Catheters are inserted into the human body to help surgeons out, and this invention will surely help many people.
Dr. Saad Saad has done a whole lot more to help those who need it the most in the world. He has been a part of many different medical missions to Palestine and has also taken in patients that have been flown out of the country. Dr. Saad Saad once saved the life of an Arab child who had been shot. While doctors in Israel were able to save his life, he required the attention of someone with the skills that Dr. Saad Saad has. The surgery took several hours to complete, but in the end, the boy was able to recover.
In 2008, Dr. Saad Saad was asked to fly out to Palestine to help people on a local level. He decided to do exactly that and was flown into Tel Aviv, where he drove to the West Bank. There, he got right to work by helping people who did not have the income to pay for medical help. He also worked with local surgeons and other medical professionals who greatly benefited from his experience and knowledge in the field. Many younger Palestinian pediatric surgeons were trained by Dr. Saad Saad. It was his intention to leave the area a much more medically prepared place than it was before he showed up. The doctor has recently retired, but he will never be forgotten for everything he has done during his career. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dr-saad-saad
Jorge Moll is a very accomplished neuroscientist in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He is the president, member of the board and senior researcher for the D’Or Institute of Research and Education, a nonprofit organization that promotes scientific and technological advancement in healthcare. In addition to his practice, he is also president of the Instituto D’Or de Pesquisa e Ensino, a medical research institute. He has maintained a General Partnership with VHM Ventures in San Jose, California since March of this year.
Jorge Moll was educated at the University of Sao Paulo and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and yet he was also a visiting research scholar at Stanford University from 2015 to 2016 and a research fellow at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke from 2004 to 2007.
Moll has been a forerunner in the study of how the human brain influences moral behavior and social judgments. He found when researching with other doctors that a functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) could detect that there was a neural basis for human social values. Jorge Moll is a pioneer in Moral cognitive neuroscience, an emerging field of research that focusing on the neural connection to human forms of social understanding and behavior.
Combining fMRI and clinical evidence indicates a consistent network of brain regions are involved in moral cognition. Because of these revealing findings, there are new interpretations of behavioral impairments in patients with brain dysfunction. This revelation requires new approaches to unveil understanding of the complicated link between the single individual, the family, and society at large. It is proposed that a cognitive neuroscience view of how cultural and context-dependent knowledge develop. Complex moral cognition can be explained by logical social knowledge being integrated into our mores and normal expectations.
Jorge Moll’s latest fMRI studies in healthy participants have revealed that moral feelings like guilt generate elements of social meaning in the right superior anterior temporal lobe. These groundbreaking studies are unveiling the brain’s contribution to creating the unhealthy mental environment that leads to depression, psychosis, and sociopathic behavior. With the use of the fMRI to test control individuals compared to participants with the major depressive disorder, the results showed that guilt-selective SCSR-ATL were decoupling and this served as a marker of deficient functional integration. Thus, the brain can reveal why our society is plagued by violent crime. It may simply be the result mental dysfunction or illness.
