Doctor accused of sterilizing women, performing hysterectomies without their consent

avaid Perwaiz, an OB/GYN in Virginia, has been arrested and charged with health care fraud after being accused of sterilizing women without their consent. The FBI had been investigating Perwaiz for over a year after a hospital employee gave them a tip about his unethical actions.

According to the Virginian Pilot, women were sent to the hospital by Perwaiz for what they thought were “annual clean outs,” without actually knowing what kind of procedure they would be undergoing. He would then be performing hysterectomies, D&Cs, or tubal ligations without their knowledge or consent.

One patient was given a D&C each year by Perwaiz because she believed she had endometriosis; at least once, the procedure was done without Perwaiz seeing her for an office visit beforehand. Another patient, a breast cancer survivor, was told that she had pre-cancerous ovarian cells present; she agreed to have her ovaries removed. But when she woke up, she found out that Perwaiz had done a complete hysterectomy, and perforated her bladder. She ended up with sepsis, and her medical records later showed that no pre-cancerous cells were present. Still another patient had tried unsuccessfully to conceive a child, only for a fertility specialist to eventually tell her that her fallopian tubes had been completely removed, burned down to nubs.

Many of the women Perwaiz victimized were Medicaid patients. Doctors often need to use hysteroscopes to be reimbursed by insurance for a hysterectomy, and a Medicaid analysis showed that Perwaiz claimed to have used his hysteroscope over 80 times in both 2016 and 2017. Yet in 2010, an inspection found that his hysteroscope was broken; it was repaired, but hadn’t been serviced since then. He also didn’t use anesthesia when using the instrument on his patients, though it can cause pain, and he only used the scope for around 10 seconds at a time — not long enough to properly view the uterus.

Perwaiz’ medical license had previously been revoked in 1996, after he pled guilty to tax evasion, but was reinstated in 1998. He also has faced numerous malpractice lawsuits.

Many women have been sterilized without their consent; this is often due to ethnicity, disability, or income status. Medicaid patients are likely to be either minorities or low-income. While it’s not known why Pervaiz did this, this kind of behavior is one of the worst injustices that can be visited on someone. And it has, understandably, left many of his patients scared and speaking out.

Every patient he sees he orders surgery on them,” one woman wrote on Facebook, the Virginian Pilot reported. Another woman said she wanted to get an ultrasound to make sure nothing had been removed. “I’ve been a patient of his since 2008 and to read about this today is very disturbing,” a third patient said on Facebook. “I’ve had several procedures performed by him to include major surgeries in which I was scheduled to have an appt at the end of this month. My concerns are what he’s done to me thus far. There is no amount of money to compensate many of us for the things and procedures that he’s performed as some aren’t reversible.”

This is what Medicare-for-all will look like in a few short years. No anglo-saxon doctors for the little people, only brown skinned immigrants who do not share our western values and morals. “Hippocrates?” never heard of him.

I really don’t understand this. The surgeon, OR Nurses and Anesthesia providers all agree what surgery to be preformed , etc before the patient ever goes back to the OR. All specimens taken out of the body are sent to pathology. And yes, people other than the surgeon understand human anatomy.. It seems pretty inconceivable this went on for so long! Sterilization gets an extra look over because it is considered permanent. A young women with no children gets an extra hard look.

A true D and C is not. I had one and I was NOT pregnant.

“Isn’t a D&C a type of abortion?”

Nope. I had one for a different reason, years into menopause. I’ve never been pregnant.

When it takes a hospital employee calling the FBI to get some action, you know something is really wrong. These are the two hospitals where he has admitting privileges according to the VA Pilot:

“He currently has two offices in Chesapeake, one on Churchland Boulevard and one on Wimbledon Square, and is affiliated with Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center and Chesapeake Regional Medical Center.”

I suggest that anyone in the vicinity or with friends/relatives in the vicinity boycott this hospital, contact the administration about the problem, contact the JCAH, and generally raise heck.

This guy was a known slimeball (financially) for years. There is very little possibility that he was really adequate clinically and then he deteriorated. So he has likely been doing this forever and the powers that be just turned a blind eye.

So don’t look to the fact that he is likely a Muslim or a Paki. He is an evil performer but he never would have been able to do this without his enablers of other faiths and national origins.

Sheesh.

I used to do sidewalk counseling at an Iranian's chop shop in Maryland. Worst #%$@$@ I ever personally encountered. He certainly crushed babies of all races and demographic groups.

He tried to run us down, showed a gun several times. Police did nothing.

Glad to say we pro-lifers scored one "save" there: we got one Muslim mama to turn around and go to the nearby Pregnancy Resource Center. We were thrilled.

I know there are some FReepers who would oppose saving Muslim babies, but you know what? Babies are babies. You know that. "Jesus loves the little children."

Maybe the mom will step in and save a Christian's life some day. Or the child will. You never know.

Only if you are already pregnant. The procedure is used for other medical reasons as well.
