Dr Vidali and his team are so amazing. I traveled to see him from Canada. No regrets! I felt so confident and comfortable at every step. Highly recommend him and his team.

Dr. Vidali is an excellent and caring physician. He takes the time to listen to his patients’ experiences and answer all questions. He is very knowledgeable, skilled, and very kind. He addressed all follow up concerns promptly and helped with anything that came up after surgery. I had very little pain after an extensive endometriosis surgery, and I believe that is due to his skill and planning. Thank you, Dr. Vidali!

After trying everything else, Dr. Vidali did my excision six months ago and I’ve never felt better. I went from 10 out of 10 pain to 0 out of 10 pain these last six months, which has never happened in over 20 years. I’m a new person. It’s a totally different life without pain, fatigue, GI issues. I’ll be forever grateful.

If I could give Dr. Vidali 100 stars, I would. The summer of 2022 I started having debilitating periods with slowly got worse. It went from mild pain during my period to daily pain that disturbed my life. In 2023 I had multiple ultrasounds to be told that everything was unremarkable and the only way to help was hormonal birth control. I tried every type of birth control out there and it would work for a few months until I found myself in pain that continued to get more severe. I finally switched OB-Gyn doctors and was told I might have endometriosis. I knew I had to not only go to an OB-Gyn but one who specializes specifically with endometriosis excision surgery. I live near Boston and consulted with the amazing team up here(will leave them nameless but I think they are great), but the wait for surgery was about 14 months out. I couldn’t wait that long with my deteriorating condition. I found Dr. Vidali from a friend who went to him. I filled out the forms and in 48 hours had an in person consultation scheduled for 8 days later. His office staff was warm and welcoming, answering my questions prior to my appointment. Dr. Vidali spent an hour with me which included an ultrasound where he immediately saw what looked like adenomyosis. He laid out a few possible treatment plans for me and gave me all the pros and cons. He was confident he could get me out of the pain I was in daily and my life back. I felt heard, validated, and understood. I scheduled surgery for 7 weeks later. The nurses and office staff answered all my questions no matter how minor they were. I went into surgery with debilitating back pain that started in my lower back and would extend at the worst of times up to my neck and down to my knees. I was in constant pelvic pain. I barely slept because of how uncomfortable I was. I had daily issues with my GI track no matter what I did. I came out of surgery after a hysterectomy, appendectomy, and excision of endometriosis with absolutely no back pain. I am currently almost 4 weeks post operation with no back pain, my GI problems are basically resolved, and I do not have any more pelvic pain like before. I have normal pain from healing from a major surgery but still feel better than I have in years. Dr. Vidali and his staff continue to communicate with me, and respond quickly to anything I need. I cannot thank him enough for giving me my life back.

I had excision surgery with Dr. Vidali this past April and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone struggling with endo. I have stage IV disease involving many organs and he was able excise it all while keeping my fertility intact. He is highly skilled with excellent bedside manner and checked in on me several times post-op to made sure I was recovering well. I am 3 weeks out and feel incredible. His team coordinators were also well organized and spelled out every step of the process along the way.

I credit Dr. Vidali with my pregnancy success after a history of recurrent miscarriage. I messaged him upon a positive pregnancy test, knowing I needed immune treatment to avoid another miscarriage. He quickly looked over my labs and prescribed medication. His wonderful nurse Linda made sure to get the script in ASAP so I could have it overnighted. All of this happened while I was anticipating my upcoming consult with Dr. Vidali. I’m forever grateful he took time out of his day (in between cases) to help me. Dr. Vidali’s advocacy for women battling infertility related disease and immune issues is unmatched — a true hero for many, including myself!

If I had 6000 stars, those would not be enough to reflect my experience of a consult with Dr.Vidali. I was seeking a second opinion due to my latent pain after excision surgery and stage IV endo and Adenomyosis diagnosis six months ago. What meant to me the most was not only the quality of the medical consult but the empathy, humanity and professionalism I was met with. We spent a good hour and a half reviewing all my history truly in depth like I have never been able to do in any other medical appointments in more than 15 years of agony going to more than 35 specialists. Dr. Vidali not only is a very knowledgeable endometriosis surgeon, he also has a strong competence in radiology and ultrasound. He has been truly a one stop shop for me during my consult, and something that truly should be the gold standard of care. He was able to show me live the findings of my MRIs pre-op, and in less than 5 mins skillfully performed an ultrasound that confirmed serious Adenomyosis and possible residual endo disease. I am not joking when I say that I learnt more about my situation in this hour and a half than in 15 years. I truly wish I had this visit 12 years ago when my symptoms started becoming unbearable but I guess we get to a place when we are supposed to. He also showed true empathy for my pain and gave me some pain management tools that i have never had before, and he even arranged an express compounding for me at a pharmacy within few hours before I left NYC. He truly has a 360 degree vision of endo care, we even discussed lifestyle and things to implement to optimize my healing. I also appreciated the extreme intellectual honesty and respect for other surgeons he showed when reviewing my surgery videos and notes. He didn’t throw his ego in the conversation to push me into picking him for my next surgery or discrediting the previous team who took care of me and that truly I had an amazing experience with. This way of talking was in absolute starking contrast with some other conversations and consultations where I received very rapid judgements without even taking the time to review my materials (e.g. they must have done something wrong if you have pain, they didn’t do what I do so well, etc). I felt seen, understood, respected. I didn’t feel he gave anything for granted, he truly wanted to help with his knowledge and experience and then leaving me with my reflections and personal decisions. I left NYC with my heart heavy because of my diagnosis and situation, but light and full by this conversation that has been healing and full of informations that will enable me to decide and do what is best for my health and quality of life. thank you Dr. Vidali! Grazie grazie grazie

There are no words to describe the level of care that Dr. Andrea Vidali provides his patients. His bedside manner is superb! Dr. Vidali’s calm demeanor, humble nature, and cozy office put me at ease the moment I walked in. I felt like I was catching up with an old friend! Prior to our introduction, my suspected endometriosis was properly excised and diagnosed. My bowel and bladder symptoms, chronic left leg and hip pain, and sciatica pain were addressed by having a sacral nerve stimulator implanted giving me 80% relief from the chronic debilitating pain that I once experienced 24/7. Although my quality of life has drastically improved, I continue to have some uncomfortable cyclic symptoms. I have spent most of my adult life in doctor’s offices trying to navigate my symptoms, multiple doctors have suggested a hysterectomy to biopsy and rule out adenomyosis. The thought of having a hysterectomy at my age, another major surgery, to biopsy my uterus was not sitting right with me. What if my uterus was totally normal and the source of discomfort was coming from somewhere else? I lost count of how many sleepless nights I have wrestled over the thought of a hysterectomy. Dr. Vidali’s advanced skills in MRI and ultrasound reading is invaluable. He determined in 30 seconds, what I have not been able to accomplish in 3 years, that I do indeed have adenomyosis. The answer to a question that seemed so out of reach just moments prior, saving me so many next steps! During the ultrasound he took time to show me on the monitor where the adeno is located in my uterus. He answered millions of questions, listened to my thoughts and concerns, and never once did I feel rushed. Dr. Vidali confirmed that my adeno is a “classic” case, is not advanced, and if symptoms are under-control for the most part I do not need a hysterectomy or another major surgery right now! Dr. Vidali gave me a huge gift, peace of mind and preservation of a major organ! Furthermore, Dr. Vidali complemented the work of my previous surgeon after reviewing surgical photos. He reassured me that I had taken all the right steps prior to meeting him. I was met with respect, honesty, compassion, transparency, and professionalism. In addition to my experience in his office, it should be noted that Dr. Vidali is well-versed in current research in the field. He is constantly researching, educating, advocating, training, and networking with other highly skilled advanced surgeons and practitioners. Most importantly, his dedication and commitment to patient advocacy has served as an immeasurable resource, providing a sense of community I had once longed for, a dream come true! I left Dr. Vidali’s office feeling like I had a new friend, a likeminded proponent who understood my passion for advocacy, and someone to turn to if the adeno discomfort accelerates. Since our initial meeting he has been easy to reach, responds quickly, and has served as an invaluable resource. The validation I got from this experience was profound!

Dr Vidali reviewed and spoke to me about my stage four sciatic endometriosis. He was very compassionate, weighing my options with me and being very clear about what I need to do whichever path I took. He's extremely Knowledgeable, and I have talked to many top surgeons in Europe and in the US. I have some unique circumstances that actually do not necessarily lend to surgery as the best option, and he made me feel confident that I could watch and wait. I really appreciate that perspective coming from a world renowned surgeon.

Endometriosis and Hormonal Treatments: What You Need to Know

In this blog post, we will delve into the world of hormonal treatments for endometriosis, providing valuable insights into their mechanisms, benefits, and considerations. Endometriosis is a complex and often challenging condition that affects millions of women worldwide. This chronic disorder, characterized by the growth of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterus, can lead to a range of painful symptoms and fertility challenges. Hormonal treatments are one of the primary approaches to managing endometriosis and its associated symptoms.

Endometriosis and Hormone Imbalance

Understanding Endometriosis and Hormonal Imbalances

Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent condition, which means it responds to the hormone estrogen. During the menstrual cycle, the misplaced endometrial tissue undergoes changes similar to the tissue within the uterus. This can lead to inflammation, pain, and the formation of adhesions and scar tissue.

Hormonal imbalances can play a significant role in the progression of endometriosis. In some cases, hormonal fluctuations can fuel the growth of endometrial lesions, exacerbating symptoms and impacting fertility.

Goals of Hormonal Treatments for Endometriosis

Endometriosis and Hormonal TreatmentsThe primary goals of hormonal treatments for endometriosis include:

  • Pain Relief: Hormonal treatments aim to reduce pelvic pain, lower back pain, and painful menstrual periods, improving the overall quality of life for women with endometriosis.
  • Suppression of Endometrial Growth: Hormonal therapies can slow down the growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, which may help prevent the formation of adhesions.
  • Management of Symptoms: Hormonal treatments can alleviate common symptoms such as bloating, heavy bleeding, and painful intercourse.

Common Hormonal Treatment Options

  • Combined Oral Contraceptives: Birth control pills containing both estrogen and progestin can help regulate the menstrual cycle and reduce pain associated with endometriosis.
  • Progestins: Progestin-only medications, such as progestin-only pills, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and depot injections, can help control endometrial growth and alleviate symptoms.
  • Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Agonists: GnRH agonists work by suppressing the production of estrogen, creating a menopause-like state. This can effectively reduce endometrial growth, but long-term use may lead to bone density loss and menopause-related symptoms.
  • Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Antagonists: Similar to GnRH agonists, GnRH antagonists reduce estrogen production, but they act more quickly and may have a shorter duration of action.
  • Aromatase Inhibitors: Aromatase inhibitors block the production of estrogen in peripheral tissues and can be used in combination with other treatments for endometriosis.

Considerations and Side Effects

While hormonal treatments can be effective in managing endometriosis symptoms, they may not be suitable for everyone. Considerations and potential side effects of hormonal treatments include:

  • Hormonal treatments may impact fertility, so women planning to conceive should discuss alternatives with their healthcare provider.
  • Some hormonal therapies can cause menopause-like symptoms, including hot flashes and mood swings.
  • Long-term use of GnRH agonists may lead to bone density loss, so it’s essential to monitor bone health during treatment.
  • Individual responses to hormonal treatments may vary, and finding the right approach often requires close collaboration with a skilled healthcare provider.
