Ovarian wedge resection
I have PCOS and have been adviced that an Ovarian wedge resection might be able to help. Apparently there is only one doctor in SA that does this. How can I get his / her details?

Ovarian wedge resection is no longer done. A similar procedure called ovarian drilling is sometimes done. There are a number of doctors that do this. A fertility doctor would be a good person to see.
