Dr. Mathew Leonardi is an advanced gynecological surgeon and sonologist (ultrasound specialist) at McMaster University Medical Centre in Hamilton, Canada. He is an expert in endometriosis excision surgery and gynecological ultrasound, and his focus is on using ultrasound in the diagnosis and surgical management of endometriosis.
In this episode, we talk about how Dr. Leonardi became interested in endometriosis research and patient care, the patient-led endometriosis revolution, theories on the causes of endometriosis, why endometriosis is often left undiagnosed, Dr. Leonardi’s unique approach to diagnosis and treatment, gaps in the standard care model for endometriosis, and so much more.
Dr. Leonardi has taken a lot of heat for his stance, which goes against the traditional idea that we can only diagnose endometriosis via laparoscopic surgery. He’s an absolute wealth of knowledge on all things endo, and I can’t wait for you to hear what he has to say!
