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!!!

Exploring the Links Between Endometriosis and Infertility

In this blog post, we will delve into the intricate connection between endometriosis and infertility, drawing on high-level medical information and data to provide a comprehensive understanding of this complex relationship. Infertility can be a deeply distressing experience for couples hoping to start a family. For many women, a diagnosis of endometriosis brings additional concerns, as this condition has been closely linked to fertility challenges. Endometriosis is a chronic condition where tissue similar to the uterine lining grows outside the uterus, leading to inflammation and the formation of adhesions.

Endometriosis and Infertility

Understanding Endometriosis and Its Prevalence

Endometriosis affects an estimated 1 in 10 women of reproductive age worldwide, making it a prevalent gynecological condition. This condition occurs when endometrial tissue, which typically lines the uterus, grows outside the uterus. The tissue may attach to organs like the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and pelvic lining, causing inflammation, scarring, and adhesion formation.

Impact of Endometriosis on Fertility

The presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus can significantly impact a woman’s fertility. Several factors contribute to the link between endometriosis and infertility:

  • Distorted Pelvic Anatomy: The presence of endometrial implants and adhesions can distort the normal pelvic anatomy, affecting the function of the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus.
  • Altered Egg Quality: Endometriosis may lead to changes in egg quality, reducing the chances of successful fertilization.
  • Impaired Egg Release (Ovulation): Ovulation can be disrupted by endometriosis, resulting in irregular or absent menstrual cycles.
  • Blockage of Fallopian Tubes: Adhesions or scar tissue can obstruct the fallopian tubes, preventing the sperm from reaching the egg or the fertilized egg from reaching the uterus.
  • Increased Inflammation: Endometriosis causes inflammation in the pelvic region, which can negatively affect embryo implantation.

Diagnosing Endometriosis-Related Infertility

Diagnosing endometriosis-related infertility often involves a comprehensive evaluation of a woman’s medical history, symptoms, and imaging studies. Dr. Andrea Vidali at the Endometriosis Treatment Center specializes in laparoscopic excision surgery, a minimally invasive procedure to diagnose and treat endometriosis. Laparoscopy allows for the direct visualization and removal of endometrial tissue, adhesions, and cysts, helping to restore pelvic anatomy and improve fertility outcomes.

Management and Treatment Options

The management of endometriosis-related infertility requires a personalized approach based on the severity of the condition and a woman’s reproductive goals. Treatment options may include:

  • Fertility Medications: Ovulation-inducing medications may be prescribed to stimulate egg release and improve fertility.
  • Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): IUI involves placing washed sperm directly into the uterus during ovulation to increase the chances of fertilization.
  • In Vitro Fertilization (IVF): IVF is a highly effective assisted reproductive technology that involves fertilizing eggs with sperm outside the body and transferring the resulting embryos into the uterus.
  • Laparoscopic Surgery: For women with moderate to severe endometriosis, laparoscopic surgery can improve fertility by removing endometrial implants and adhesions.
