On staff since September 2008

Children's Title: Director, Pediatric Surgery Fellowship Training Program

Academic Title: Associate Professor

"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.

      Dr.Javid has been such a great doctor he has done three surgerys on my daughter and I felt like he was very caring and passionate about his job. He has helped me see other doctors and has been treating my daughter since 2013 and I am extremely grateful with his care and attention.

    • Teresa WA 10.23.17

      Dr. Javid is the best! Yes, he is very intelligent, and highly skilled at what he does. However, It is his trustworthiness, calmness, humor, and ability to relate to both patient and family that makes him stand out. Dr. Javid has handled some very serious surgeries for my family. Each and every time he finds the time to answer both child, and adult questions and never makes you feel rushed. He has earned our trust, and our respect!

    • Michaela Kent, Washington 05.07.11

      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.
