       Overview 
       Overview
      Dr. Vanessa Jacoby is an obstetrician gynecologist with a research program focused on surgical gynecology. She has studied long-term health outcomes of hysterectomy and oophorectomy. She is the principal investigator of an American Cancer Society funded cohort study of women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations who undergo risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy. Most recently, her research has focused on studies of new minimally invasive treatments for women with uterine fibroids. She is the principal investigator of a nationwide registry for women with fibroids undergoing laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation (fibroids.ucsf.edu) and a co-investigator for a clinical trial of MR guided focused ultrasound compared with uterine artery embolization for fibroids. Dr. Jacoby is also the lead investigator for the University of California Fibroid Network, a state-wide collaboration to improve the care of women with fibroids through research, education, and collaborative clinical practice.
