"Many children with intestinal failure are unable to take adequate nutrition by mouth or into their stomach because they lack the intestinal capacity to absorb the nutrients. I am passionate about finding ways to improve the ability of these children to eat on their own and to wean from IV nutrition."

Patrick Javid, MD, is an attending surgeon in the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery at Seattle Children,s Hospital, and an assistant professor in the Department of Surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He also attends at Seattle Children's Tri-Cities Clinic.

Javid's primary focus, both clinically and in the lab, concerns intestinal failure, and the translational research needed to determine the optimal treatment options for children suffering from this condition. Dr. Javid received his MD from the University of Michigan Medical School. He completed his residency at Brigham and Women's Hospital at Harvard Medical School, and his fellowship at Children's Hospital at Boston Children's Hospital.

    Doctor Javid has done several surgeries on my son. He is currently working to repair my sons feeding tube. Dr. Javid is a very caring, helpful doctor who keeps me and my family very informed about all the procedures that can help. He is very attentive and and communicates with my son to help ease his anxiety. I would definitely recommend Dr. Javid for any procedures needed and will be very happy if he continues to work with my family.
