The review also revealed that Perwaiz allegedly had a "propensity to conduct bundled surgeries", involving laparoscopy, dilation and curettage, and lysis of adhesions, the affidavit states.

According to the documents, one woman visited Perwaiz concerning an ectopic pregnancy.

From 2011 to 2014, Perwaiz allegedly asked the patiently "routinely" whether she planned on having another baby, the affidavit states.

A Virginia doctor was arrested Friday for allegedly performing unnecessary surgical procedures on women without their knowledge or consent.

The Chesapeake doctor allegedly told one woman that she needed a hysterectomy after discovering the "imminent onset" of cancer. That patient learned that there were less invasive procedures available when consulting with another doctor, according to the court documents. She insisted on a less extensive procedure, but after the surgery, she woke up to "discover Perwaiz performed a total abdominal hysterectomy", the documents claim. The patient wanted a less invasive procedure and thought that they had agreed on a laparoscopic surgery to remove her ovaries.
