The patient objected and asked instead for a less invasive operation, in which only her ovaries were removed, the court papers said.

When the woman awoke from surgery, "she was shocked to discover Perwaiz performed a total abdominal hysterectomy." The doctor cut the patient's bladder in the process, causing sepsis and requiring a six-day hospital stay, investigators claimed.

When the woman later obtained her medical records, the surgery was described as "elective" and cancer was not mentioned, they said.

In another case, Perwaiz performed a hysterectomy on a woman, who he described in medical records as having "chronic pelvic pain, pressure and persistent cramping."

The woman, who had gone to Pervaiz for post-menopausal bleeding, later told investigators she had not experienced any of those symptoms, and Perwaiz had warned her only about the potential consequences, including cancer, if she did not undergo the procedure.
