About me

Pronouns: She | Her | Hers

Dr. Christi Butler is a urologic surgeon who specializes in urinary system reconstruction. Her primary focus is on gender-affirming care and genital reconstruction, including feminizing vaginoplasty and vulvoplasty, masculinizing metoidioplasty and urethral lengthening procedures. She is also trained in placing prosthetic implants after phalloplasty procedures.

In research, Butler's interests center on clinical outcomes (how patients feel and function after treatments) for transgender and gender-diverse people. Specifically, she looks at motivations for seeking surgery and techniques impacting aesthetic and functional outcomes. During her fellowship, she was part of research initiatives to begin collaborative registries that would track outcomes data and facilitate the study of factors impacting decisions about surgery. She is also interested in better understanding the impact of hormone exposure on certain hormone-sensitive cancers, such as prostate, breast and endometrial cancers. An overarching goal of her studies is to expand knowledge in the field of transgender care.

Butler earned her medical degree from the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. She completed a residency in urology at UCSF and a fellowship in genital and urinary reconstruction, with a focus in gender-affirming care, at Oregon Health & Science University.

In her free time, Butler and her partner enjoy traveling. She has visited five of the seven continents and hopes to see them all. She takes pleasure in learning about different cultures, trying new cuisines and studying the Spanish language.

    I was interviewed by two dr's and unfortunately, I don't have there names available, but they both were great, patience andInformative to what I was dealing with and checked with me to see if I understood and if I had any questions. When I finished my meeting with them, I felt I had an excellent understanding of what to expect and and how to proceed forward.
