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!!!

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.
