Doctor Vidali is the best of the best. I was concerned with my ability to conceive given I was already diagnosed and had surgery for endometriosis. Doctor Vidali listened to my concerns and although he initially thought it would be minimal invasive surgery he still made time to fit me into his schedule. Dr. Vidali shows how much he cares for his patients by listening to them. He is very busy. It is important to have your questions ready during any follow up call because after surgery and after the follow up he will not be available. Regardless of his busy schedule I highly recommend Dr. Vidali.

Despite being an ocean and two seas away over a phone line - I felt like we were in the same room. Dr. Vidali was so warm, kind, funny and he truly HEARD ME. He listened and heard me! Anyone with endo knows how rare this is. Zero gaslighting, full honesty and so so much help and guidance with my next steps through this perilous disease. All these 5* reviews are truly warranted. I wish I could give him 10*s and a hug. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. V - you truly are THE BEST. xx

I traveled from Texas to NYC to see Dr. Vidali. He was the first doctor to empathize with me and validate my concerns and pain, and I trusted him immediately! Once I decided on surgery, his staff got me scheduled pretty quickly. My experience on surgery day was also super seamless - the hospital staff all love Dr. Vidali and made sure that I was always comfortable and taken care of. Even after surgery he still answers texts and emails, and you can just tell he is so passionate about what he does. I recommend him to everyone and 10000% would travel to him again for surgery!! Thank you Dr. Vidali!

I’ll sing Dr. Vidali’s praises to anyone who will listen. Traveling from Pittsburgh to see him is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and has a clear passion for endometriosis care. One appointment with Dr. V was more productive and validating than the two decades I spent prior, groveling and begging other doctors to take me seriously. I left shedding tears of relief that I’d finally found a doctor I could count on. His team in the office is just as kind and helpful. I’m recovering very well from the excision surgery he performed just a few short weeks later and am endlessly grateful for Dr. Vidali’s expertise and dedication to his patients. You won’t regret putting your faith in him.

After over a decade of going through dozens of doctors only to be left with worsening pain, no answers, and harmful treatments, I found Dr. Vidali. I do not know where I would be without him! Besides my surgery which was life changing, Dr. Vidali’s pre and post op care is incredible. Even two years after my surgery I had a question, and his office quickly scheduled a call for me. Dr. Vidali answered my question which put me at ease and even followed up asking about all aspects of my health and how I have been on my health journey. After going through tons of doctors, I can confidently say I would highly recommend him! He is clearly an expert in this field and is consistently up to date with all things endometriosis.

Like many women, I unfortunately fell through the cracks of Ontario’s crumbling healthcare system. Having my concerns brushed aside for over a decade and then, in the last two years, playing the waiting game as to when I would be treated is what ultimately led to my decision to travel a distance of approximately 1,500 km from Ontario to New Jersey for surgical treatment. From the moment I met Dr. Vidali during my pre-operative appointment, I knew that I was in good hands. His confident but down-to-earth and caring demeanour instilled my trust in him, and I knew I had made the best possible decision for myself. In addition to Dr. Vidali’s expertise, the lengths he goes to educate on and advocate for this disease is admirable. There aren't enough words to thank Dr. Vidali and his surgical team including Dr. McHale, Dr. Larish, and Dr. Raccuia for providing me with the utmost care. Although my operation was only 2.5 weeks ago, I am already feeling like a new person. The debilitating symptoms I was experiencing on a daily basis seem to have been taken from my body along with the extensive disease that was removed. Thanks to Dr. Vidali and his team of experts, I feel hopeful for the future.

I cannot recommend Dr. Vidali enough. He is a remarkable human being. From my initial phone consultation on April 5th to my surgery on May 25th, Dr. Vidali was able to do more for me in 7 weeks than the 6 doctors I had seen previously did in 5 years. Dr. Vidali definitely surrounds himself with the best so I knew that no matter what they encountered I would be in good hands. He was able to quickly get to the root cause of my pain instead of simply masking my symptoms. I also had a remarkably quick, pain free recovery which I 100% attribute to him and his amazing team. Thank you Dr. Vidali!

I contacted Dr. Vidali on Instagram to see if he would mind reviewing pictures from my recent laparoscopic surgery. He was very quick to respond and said yes! He provided the answers to my questions and reassured me that my endo was properly excised. I can’t thank him enough for doing this for me.

I saw Dr. Vidali for endometriosis treatment in 2021. He called me while on vacation (!!!) for my initial consultation, so I didn't have to wait too long. He took the time to listen to my long list of endo symptoms, from the physical to the social-emotional aspects of the disease. His team is as great as he is. I've been pain-free ever since my surgery, nearly 2 years now. I'm working, exercising, and enjoying life again after years of debilitating pain. I cannot recommend Dr. Vidali enough.

Dr. Vidali is amazing! He gave me his expert advice to help guide me during my infertility journey. He even provided his personal cell phone number and encouraged me to reach out for questions. Highly recommend!

Endometriosis in Teenagers: Recognizing Symptoms and Seeking Support

Endometriosis in Teenagers Teens Parents

In this blog post, we’ll explore endometriosis in teenagers, its symptoms, and the importance of seeking timely support. Endometriosis is a complex and often misunderstood condition that affects women’s reproductive systems. While it’s most commonly diagnosed in adults, it can also affect teenagers. Recognizing the symptoms of endometriosis in teens and providing them with the support they need is crucial for their well-being.

Understanding Endometriosis in Teens

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus, causing pain and other symptoms. While it’s more commonly diagnosed in people aged 25 to 40, it can start during the teenage years.

Common Symptoms in Teens

Recognizing the symptoms of endometriosis in teenagers can be challenging because they may overlap with typical menstrual discomfort. However, if your teen experiences the following symptoms consistently, it’s essential to seek medical advice:

  • Pelvic Pain: Persistent pelvic pain, often worsening during menstruation, can be a sign of endometriosis.
  • Heavy Menstrual Bleeding: Unusually heavy menstrual bleeding, known as menorrhagia, may occur.
  • Painful Periods: Severe menstrual cramps that interfere with daily activities are a common symptom.
  • Gastrointestinal Symptoms: Endometriosis can cause digestive issues like diarrhea, constipation, or bloating, especially during menstruation.
  • Painful Intercourse: Teens with endometriosis may experience pain during sexual intercourse.
  • Fatigue: Chronic fatigue not relieved by rest can be associated with endometriosis.

Seeking Support and Medical Evaluation

If your teen exhibits symptoms, they should seek a medical evaluation and consider these factors:

  • Consult a Specialist: Schedule an appointment with a doctor who specializes in adolescent gynecology or endometriosis. Early diagnosis is key to managing the condition effectively.
  • Open Communication: Encourage your teen to communicate openly about their symptoms. Create a supportive and non-judgmental environment where they feel comfortable discussing their health.
  • Pain Management: Discuss pain management strategies with your healthcare provider. They may recommend over-the-counter pain relievers or prescribe medications to alleviate discomfort.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Encourage a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, a balanced diet, and stress management techniques. These practices can help manage endometriosis symptoms.

Supporting Your Teen

Endometriosis in TeensSupporting your teen through an endometriosis diagnosis is crucial for their well-being. Some important factors to consider when supporting your child through this condition:

  • Emotional Support: Acknowledge your teen’s feelings and emotions. Endometriosis can be emotionally challenging, and providing a safe space for expression is vital.
  • Education: Help your teen understand their condition. Provide age-appropriate resources and information about endometriosis, its treatment options, and the importance of self-care.
  • Advocate for Their Health: Be an advocate for your teen’s health. Ensure they receive appropriate medical care and follow-up appointments.
  • Empower Them: Encourage your teen to take an active role in managing their health. Teach them how to track symptoms and communicate effectively with healthcare providers.

Endometriosis in Teenagers: Conclusion

Recognizing the symptoms of endometriosis in teens and providing them with the necessary support and medical care is crucial for their well-being. With early diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan, teens with endometriosis can effectively manage their condition and enjoy a better quality of life. Remember that seeking timely support is key to addressing endometriosis in teenagers.
