Research/Clinical Interests

Dr. Christy is an advanced laparoscopic surgeon who performs minimally invasive gynecological surgery for ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, permanent contraception, diagnosis of pelvic pain and medically indicated hysterectomy. She also performs outpatient hysteroscopies for uterine cavity lesions including polyps, fibroids, retained contraceptive device, the evaluation of a thickened uterine lining, including for abnormal and postmenopausal bleeding and endometrial ablation for the treatment of unusually heavy menses.

Dr. Christy performs well health exams including the pap smear. She performs biopsy of the cervix, removal of abnormal cells of the cervix, vulvar and uterine biopsies and early pregnancy ultrasound in the office. Her practice also includes consultation for gynecological questions that may or may not lead to a recommendation for surgery or for the evaluation and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, vaginitis, excessive or painful menstruation, contraceptive needs, the nonsurgical approach to pelvic organ prolapse; as well as hormonal concerns including, polycystic ovary syndrome, the menopausal transition and menopause.

She has 17 years of experience in the care of persons with normal pregnancies, suffering miscarriage and who have high risk pregnancies. During that time she has always had a strong collaborative care relationship with midwives. Dr. Christy prides herself in being able to establish relationships that respect her patients’ autonomy, so that they are partners in their care. At the same time she is able to collaborate with her colleagues in the many specialties that are available at UCSF, for as comprehensive a patient experience as is needed for each individual person.
