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

Academic Title: Professor of Pediatric General Surgery

Research Center: Center for Clinical and Translational Research

"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."

  • Biography

    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.
