"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."

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.
