A Virginia gynecologist-obstetrician was detained for supposedly tying patients’ fallopian tubes and conducting unneeded hysterectomies without their awareness or approval, according to federal court reports.
Javaid Perwaiz, 69-year-old, was indicted with health care fraud and making deceptive statements relating to health care concerns.
From January 2014 to August 2018, Javaid Perwaiz supposedly conducted surgeries on 510 subjects, reports reveal. Of those 510 subjects, almost 42 percent of them underwent a couple or more surgeries.
Witnesses are mentioned in court documents saying Javaid Perwaiz “repeatedly used the ‘C-word’ (cancer) to terrify patients into having surgery.“
The Chesapeake doctor supposedly told one lady that she required a hysterectomy after finding the “imminent onset” of cancer. The patient protested and opted for a less invasive surgery where just her ovaries would be eliminated.
Later, when the woman awakened after the surgery, “shocked to discover Perwaiz performed a total abdominal hysterectomy.” Perwaiz also cut her bladder in the manner, creating sepsis and demanding a 6-day hospital stay, the sources report.
Different women visited Perwaiz for ectopic fertility. When she attended a fertility specialist, she was supposedly told that her fallopian tubes “were throbbed down to the nubs, causing natural conception next to impossible.“
These charges are not the initial time Javaid Perwaiz has had to face with the authority over his applications.
In 1982, Javaid Perwaiz lost his admitting rights for conducting needless surgeries and poor clinical judgment as per the Virginia Board of Medicine. Perwaiz has also been sued for malpractice 8 times, court reports stated.
Javaid Perwaiz was affiliated with Chesapeake Regional Medical Center and Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center at the event of his detention, the sources report.
As of Tuesday afternoon, both hospitals’ websites have excluded all mentions of Javaid Perwaiz.
