Dr. Pardis Javadi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery. Dr. Javadi is a head and neck surgical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of head and neck cancer, skin cancer of the head and neck, thyroid and parathyroid neoplasms, and salivary gland neoplasms. She has advanced training in microvascular reconstructive techniques.
Dr. Javadi attended college at Quincy University, in Quincy, Illinois. She earned her medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. She completed her otolaryngology-head and neck surgery residency at Albany Medical Center and a fellowship in advanced oncologic head and neck surgery and reconstructive surgery at Emory University.
Dr. Javadi's research is focused on understanding factors that affect head and neck cancer outcomes, with the eventual goal to implement interventions to improve outcomes. Her research interests also include studying the effect of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on head and neck cancers.
She is a member of the American Head & Neck Society (AHNS) and American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS). She serves on multiple committees with the AHNS as well the SIU School of Medicine.
