Adenomyomectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing a portion or all of the uterus (womb) in order to treat adenomyosis. Adenomyosis is a condition where the endometrial tissue (the tissue that lines the uterus) grows into the muscle walls of the uterus, causing thickening and enlargement of the uterus.
Surgery for Adenomyosis
The surgery can be performed in two ways:
Open surgery: A large incision is made in the abdomen in order to remove the affected tissue. This method is typically used for severe cases of adenomyosis or for women who wish to preserve their fertility.
Laparoscopic surgery: A camera and small instruments are inserted through small incisions in the abdomen in order to remove the affected tissue. This method is less invasive than open surgery and has a faster recovery time.
Adenomyomectomy is typically recommended for women who have severe symptoms of adenomyosis, such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and infertility. The procedure can also improve the chances of pregnancy for women who have been unable to conceive due to adenomyosis.
It is important to note that adenomyomectomy is a major surgery and carries some risks such as bleeding, infection, and injury to surrounding organs. It also carries risks for infertility and also requires recovery time post-surgery. It’s important to consult with a specialist in reproductive health and gynecology to determine if this surgery is the best option for you.
