What is Adenomyosis?

Adenomyosis is a condition that occurs when the cells that line the uterus grow into the muscular tissue of the uterine wall. The uterine wall becomes thicker, which can cause pain. The uterus may also enlarge.

During this procedure, a board-certified interventional radiologist uses minimally invasive techniques to block the blood supply to the uterus. In the case of adenomyosis, the blocked blood vessels displace the tissue causing adenomyosis.

At the Fairfax Vascular Center, you are at the Center of personalized patient care. You will receive a personal one on one consultation with one of our expert physicians. Schedule a consult with one of our doctors to see if this treatment might help you.

Many women with adenomyosis do not have any symptoms at all. But when symptoms are present, they may include:

  • Heavy, irregular, or prolonged menstrual bleeding or painful periods
