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 Endometriosis: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment Options

Understanding EndometriosisIn this comprehensive blog post, we will delve into the various aspects and increase our understanding of endometriosis, drawing on medical sources and data to provide a detailed understanding of this condition.

Endometriosis is a complex and often challenging condition that affects millions of women worldwide. It is a chronic disorder in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside of the uterus, leading to pain, inflammation, and potential fertility issues. Understanding the symptoms, causes, and treatment options for endometriosis is crucial for early diagnosis and effective management.

Symptoms of Endometriosis

Endometriosis can present with a wide range of symptoms, and the severity can vary from woman to woman. Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Chronic pelvic pain that may worsen during menstruation
  • Painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
  • Pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding
  • Painful bowel movements or urination during menstruation
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility or difficulty getting pregnant

It is essential to note that the severity of symptoms does not necessarily correlate with the extent of endometrial tissue growth. Some women with mild endometriosis may experience severe pain, while others with extensive tissue growth may have minimal symptoms.

Causes of Endometriosis

The exact cause of endometriosis is not fully understood, but several theories have been proposed by medical researchers. Some of the potential causes include:

Retrograde Menstruation
One common theory suggests that during menstruation, some menstrual blood flows backward through the fallopian tubes and into the pelvic cavity. This blood contains endometrial cells, which can attach and grow on the pelvic organs and tissues.

Genetic Factors
Endometriosis tends to run in families, suggesting that there may be a genetic predisposition to the condition.

Immune System Dysfunction
An abnormal immune response may allow the growth and survival of endometrial tissue outside the uterus.

Hormonal Imbalance
Hormones play a significant role in endometrial tissue growth and shedding during the menstrual cycle. Imbalances in hormones like estrogen and progesterone may contribute to the development of endometriosis.

Diagnosing Endometriosis

Diagnosing endometriosis can be challenging and may require a combination of medical history, physical examinations, imaging studies, and minimally invasive procedures. Some of the methods used to diagnose endometriosis include:

Pelvic Exam
During a pelvic exam, a healthcare provider may feel for any abnormalities or masses in the pelvic area.

Ultrasound
Transvaginal ultrasound may be used to visualize the pelvic organs and detect endometrial growths.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI can provide detailed images of the pelvic organs, helping to identify endometrial growths.

Laparoscopy
This is the most definitive method for diagnosing endometriosis. During laparoscopy, a thin, lighted tube (laparoscope) is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen to visualize and biopsy any suspicious tissue.

Treatment Options for Endometriosis

The goal of endometriosis treatment is to manage symptoms, improve quality of life, and, if desired, preserve fertility. The choice of treatment depends on factors such as the severity of symptoms, the extent of tissue growth, and the woman’s reproductive goals. Treatment options include:

Pain Medications
Over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen can help manage mild pain associated with endometriosis. For severe pain, stronger prescription medications may be prescribed.

Hormonal Therapies
Hormonal treatments, such as birth control pills, hormonal intrauterine devices (IUDs), and GnRH agonists, can help regulate the menstrual cycle and reduce the growth of endometrial tissue.

Excision Surgery
Laparoscopic excision surgery is the gold standard for treating endometriosis. During this minimally invasive procedure, the surgeon removes the endometrial tissue and any adhesions while preserving healthy tissue.

Fertility Preservation
For women who desire to preserve their fertility, surgical and hormonal treatments that preserve ovarian function and function of the fallopian tubes can be considered.

Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART)
For women with infertility due to endometriosis, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and other ART procedures can help achieve pregnancy.
