Areas of Experience/Interest
Dr. Christie is experienced in the areas of assisted reproductive technologies (ART), in vitro fertilization (IVF), and hormone replacement therapy (HRT). He has authored peer-reviewed papers on ovarian cancer and HRT.
As an adjunct to his training, Dr. Christie is furthering his development and expertise in the emerging technologies surrounding in vitro maturation (IVM). As the technology develops, IVM is showing to be beneficial with patients who are easily over-stimulated through the traditional IVF process, patients suffering from PCOS, or patients who have hormone sensitive cancers, such as breast cancer. Advantages of IVM include A) minimal stimulation, B) reduced risk of hyperstimulation, and C) advanced or timed scheduling of the oocyte retrieval procedure.
Dr. Christie is also certified in the use of the minimally invasive da Vinci robotic surgery system.
