Choosing Dr. Vidali for my surgery was the best decision I have ever made for my health. Prior to surgery I was trying to exercise and eat healthy but the chronic pain and symptoms of my endometriosis put me in a cycle of not being able to eat certain foods that were healthy but would increase my pain because of bowel endo. I also did my best to exercise because I did feel better afterwards but before and during I would be in pain because of severe cramps and constipation. Many doctors tell you to loose weight to relieve your symptoms but they don't address the underlying issues creating huge barriers to doing so. It felt so good to finally be listened to and my pain not dismissed. When I went over my post op note, I finally felt validated because every symptom I described, he found endo causing havoc in the area. He was extremely thorough and diligent with the excision while still preserving my reproductive system. I have heard of so many stories where people weren't relieved of their symptoms or more was taken out than should have. Personally, I would not trust just my regular obgyn or a referral to an in network provider who does not have the level of expertise as someone like Dr. Vidali to do this surgery just to save on out of network cost. You will be paying for it later. Dr. Vidali is worth his weight in gold. Recovery has been challenging as my body is relearning how to do its normal body functions without obstruction from endo. I highly recommend pelvic floor PT as soon as you can do it after surgery.

I am so thankful for Dr Vidali. Previously I experienced extremely painful cramps and bloating each month. The bloating became so bad that my OB suggested an ultrasound which found 2 endometriomas. I met with a different doctor first who told me I would need surgery to remove the endometriomas, and also advised that in order to get pregnant I would need to work with a fertility specialist to go through IVF because unknown impacts of the surgery. I then saw Dr. Vidali who said that while I needed surgery to remove the endometriomas, there is no reason to think that I wouldn’t be able to conceive a baby naturally. He took the time to deeply explain things to my husband and I and answered all of our questions thoughtfully. Dr.Vidali was able to schedule my surgery for July of 2020 despite being in the midst of surgical delays during the pandemic. The surgery was successful and I’m happy to say that Dr. Vidali was right and I conceived a baby naturally in October 2020, just 3 months after my surgery. 3 years later and I no longer have the painful cramps and there is no bloating. I will always appreciate Dr.Vidali for advising me to make the best medical decision for me and my family.

Dr. Vidali saved my life! Having suffered with endo symptoms for most of my adult life, I did a LOT or research prior to choosing my excision surgeon - I wanted to make sure I’d have an expert who would look EVERYWHERE and remove EVERYTHING. This is exactly what Dr. Vidali did, and throughout the whole process, he was so nice and empathetic and knowledgeable, I’ve always felt so comfortable and optimistic. But I had no idea how much surgery would change my life. My case in particular was not about fertility issues, but really excruciating pain and other endo symptoms. It’s been 4 weeks today and I can’t believe how much difference I already feel. It feels like a huge cloud that was always above me just simply left. Truly life changing. Dr. vidali’s team and the hospital team were also amazing, surgery day couldn’t have been more seamless and comfortable.

Thank you, Dr. Vidali. He and his office are busy, but once I had my consultation, I felt he cared and heard. What I was dealing with was real the pain and the difficulties in my ttc journey. I was able to have implantation success after the laparoscopy surgery. Wish I had found him sooner. Four years of trying, and after the surgery, I waited six months, and my transfer worked. I have a two year old thanks to Dr. Vidali. Edited to add, it was emotional for me to realize how much pain I lived with before having the surgery. Thank you again, Dr. Vidali for my quality of life in my body.

Dr. Vidali is fantastic! My husband and I were having a challenging time getting pregnant. We went to Dr. Vidali to see if it was because of my endometriosis. After meeting with him for my appointment, I knew he would be the one to get to the bottom of what was going on. He listened to everything I was going through and asked questions. He really took the time to get to know my situation. He definitely went above and beyond to help in any way he could. After some testing and recommendations we able to get pregnant naturally which was huge for my husband and I. Dr. Vidali only has the best intentions for his patients and genuinely wants to help them. I would highly recommend Dr. Vidali!

Just had my consult with Dr. Vidali and it was fantastic. I had so many questions regarding endometriosis and adenomyosis and he answered them fully, thoughtfully, and without judgement. He made me feel heard and validated and most importantly not rushed. (Something I haven’t felt from a doctors office in a long time.) I feel supported and ready to begin my endo healing journey. Thank you Dr. Vidali!

Dr. Vidali saved my life. Seriously. There is no greater gift than the one he afforded me. Been suffering from endo and adeno for my entire life, but it got so bad that for years I was in the ER every 3 weeks when my cycle started. I had no life left, I couldn't make plans, the window of time I had without pain was narrowing to the point where I spent most of my life in bed. Mentally, I was in such bad shape I didn't know if there was a way out. I had two surgeries with Dr. Vidali. The first was to remove endometriosis and unfortunately it did not help my pain- I was devastated. But it was the more conservative option. The second was for a total hysterectomy and I'm so glad I did it. I have my life back. I said I'd wait until 6 months post op to make any declarations out of an abundance of caution but I feel confident that he solved the problem. I'm making plans, seeing my friends, living my life again. There are some side effects and I'm not perfect, but the cost was worth the benefit a million times over. Dr. Vidali also recommended a surgeon for my mother when she almost lost her life due to life-threatening infection. He is amazing and we are so grateful for the role he's played in my family's health. Doc- if you're reading this- we love you!!!

A Brief Overview of Endometriosis

Overview of Endometriosis | Treatment Center NYCIn this article we will give a brief overview of Endometriosis. Endometriosis is a common and often misunderstood condition that affects many people. It is a chronic disorder in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus. This tissue, called endometriosis tissue, can grow on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other organs in the pelvis. It can also grow on the bladder, bowel, and other organs outside the pelvis.

Endometriosis is often accompanied by chronic pelvic pain and can also cause fertility problems. It is estimated to affect about 10% of women of reproductive age, although the actual prevalence may be higher due to underdiagnosis. Because of delayed diagnosis, endometriosis is most commonly diagnosed in women in their 30s.

What Are the Causes?

The exact cause of endometriosis is not fully understood, but there are several theories about what might contribute to its development. One prevailing theory is that endometriosis cells may be present in the pelvis at birth and grow over time. Some research suggests that endometriosis may be related to hormonal imbalances or immune system problems.

Symptoms of Endometriosis

Symptoms of endometriosis can vary widely from person to person and may include chronic pelvic pain, painful periods, pain during sex, and infertility. Other possible symptoms include fatigue, bloating, and discomfort during bowel movements or urination. The severity of symptoms does not always correspond to the extent of endometrial tissue growth, so some women with severe endometriosis may have minimal symptoms, while others with minimal tissue growth may have severe symptoms.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis of endometriosis is typically made through laparoscopic surgery, during which a thin, lighted instrument called a laparoscope is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen. The surgeon can then look inside the pelvis and see if endometrial tissue is present. A biopsy (removal of a small sample of tissue) may also be done to confirm the diagnosis.

Endometriosis Treatment Options

Treatment options for endometriosis vary depending on the severity of the condition and the woman’s symptoms and fertility goals. Treatment options include medication, surgery, and alternative therapies.

Surgical options for endometriosis include laparoscopic surgery to remove endometrial tissue and to repair any damage to the reproductive organs. Some women with endometriosis have also reported relief from dietary changes and physical therapy.

Living with Endometriosis

Living with endometriosis can be challenging, and many women find it helpful to have strategies for managing their symptoms and maintaining a good quality of life. These strategies may include:

Managing pain: This may involve taking medication, applying heat to the abdominal area, and avoiding activities that exacerbate pain.

Getting support: It can be helpful to talk to friends, family, or a therapist about the challenges of living with endometriosis. Support groups for women with endometriosis can also be a helpful resource.

Finding ways to relax and reduce stress: Stress can exacerbate endometriosis symptoms, so finding ways to relax and reduce stress can be helpful. This might include activities like meditation, yoga, or exercise.

Communicating with your healthcare provider: It is important to be open and honest with your healthcare provider about your symptoms and concerns. This can help them to better understand your condition and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

Despite being a common condition, many people still do not understand endometriosis, and many women struggle to get the support and treatment they need. Advocacy and support for research into the causes and treatments of endometriosis can help to improve the lives of women with this condition.

Several organizations provide information, support, and resources for women with endometriosis, including the Endometriosis Summit. These organizations can be valuable resources for women seeking information and support for endometriosis.
