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!

Understanding Chronic Pelvic Pain: Causes and Management

In this blog, we will gain an understanding of chronic pelvic pain, exploring its potential causes and evidence-based management strategies.  Chronic pelvic pain is a complex and distressing condition that affects many women, significantly impacting their daily lives and overall well-being. Defined as persistent pain in the pelvic region lasting six months or more, this condition can be challenging to diagnose and manage effectively.

For women experiencing chronic pelvic pain, seeking expert care and understanding the underlying causes are crucial steps towards finding relief and improving their quality of life. Drawing on multiple sources, we aim to shed light on this prevalent issue and provide valuable insights for women seeking answers and solutions.

understanding Chronic Pelvic Pain

What Is Chronic Pelvic Pain?

Chronic pelvic pain is characterized by continuous or recurrent pain in the lower abdomen or pelvis, often lasting for at least six months. The pain may be steady or intermittent, and its intensity can range from mild discomfort to severe agony. It is essential to recognize that chronic pelvic pain is a symptom, not a diagnosis itself, as it can be caused by various underlying conditions or a combination of factors.

Potential Causes of Chronic Pelvic Pain

The origins of chronic pelvic pain can be multifaceted, involving a range of anatomical, physiological, and psychological factors. Some potential causes and contributing factors include:

Endometriosis: The presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus can lead to inflammation and pain in the pelvic region.

Adenomyosis: When the endometrial tissue grows into the muscular wall of the uterus, it can cause painful, heavy periods.

Uterine Fibroids: Non-cancerous growths in the uterus can lead to pelvic pressure and pain.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID): Infections in the reproductive organs, usually caused by sexually transmitted infections, can result in chronic pain.

Ovarian Cysts: Fluid-filled sacs that develop on or within the ovaries can cause pelvic discomfort.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): A gastrointestinal disorder characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits.

Interstitial Cystitis: A chronic bladder condition that causes pain and pressure in the pelvic area.

Chronic Pelvic Inflammation: Inflammation in the pelvic region can cause pain and discomfort.

Scar Tissue (Adhesions): Bands of scar tissue that form between pelvic organs can lead to pain and restricted movement.

Musculoskeletal Issues: Problems with the pelvic floor muscles or the spine can contribute to chronic pelvic pain.

Diagnosis and Management

Diagnosing the specific cause of chronic pelvic pain can be challenging due to the diverse range of potential underlying conditions. It typically requires a comprehensive evaluation, which may involve:

  • Detailed medical history and symptom assessment
  • Physical examination, including pelvic exam
  • Imaging tests, such as ultrasound or MRI
  • Laparoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure to view the pelvic organs

Once a diagnosis is determined, the management of chronic pelvic pain will depend on the underlying cause and the severity of symptoms. Treatment approaches may include:

  • Medications: Pain relievers, hormonal therapies, or antibiotics, depending on the cause.
  • Physical Therapy: Pelvic floor physical therapy to improve muscle function and reduce pain.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Stress reduction, regular exercise, and dietary changes may help manage symptoms.
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery: Laparoscopy to remove endometrial tissue or treat other structural issues.

Psychological Support and Coping Strategies

Living with chronic pelvic pain can take a toll on a woman’s mental health and emotional well-being. Seeking psychological support, such as counseling or therapy, can be valuable in coping with the challenges of this condition. Additionally, incorporating coping strategies and self-care techniques into daily life can improve overall well-being:

  • Mindfulness practices, such as meditation or deep breathing exercises.
  • Engaging in hobbies and activities that bring joy and distraction.
  • Connecting with support groups to share experiences and gain insights.
  • Seeking emotional support from family and friends.
