What Is adenomyosis? Can it be treated by Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


So adenomyosis is a condition of the uterus which again is painful and what you have is some of the endometrial tissue kind of going into the muscle and just like endometriosis is when it’s on the outside so here the endometrium is gone into the muscle a little bit and that causes pain and also the other symptoms that sometimes feels like they are from fibroids.

The issue of whether you can treat it with embolization, it’s been done, it’s been published. People have done it, it’s not a 100% effective but I have personally seen patients where I have treated them and they felt better, it’s better than having a hysterectomy.
