Octomom, Nadya Suleman’s fertility doctor - Dr. Michael Kamrava will lose his license to practice medicine as of July 1. No more implanting crazy numbers of embryos for you Dr. Kamrava!
Dr. Kamarava implanted Nadya with 12 embryos three years ago. Of the 12 embryos 8 survived, infamously giving Suleman the title Octomom.
At the time of implanting, Nadya was a 33-year old unemployed single mother of 6. Last year Dr. Kamarava apologized for implanting her rather then sending Suleman to get a mental health evaluation.
The board found that Kamrava “did not exercise sound judgment” in treating Suleman and two other patients – a 48-year-old who had complications after becoming pregnant with quadruplets and a 42-year-old who contracted ovarian cancer after fertility treatments.
The board found that Kamrava “committed gross negligence, repeated negligent acts, and incompetence.”
Kamrava’s attorneys had argued that Suleman could have terminated some of the fetuses, that the negative publicity surrounding the Octomom case is a sufficient deterrent, and that Kamrava had learned his lesson. Source: people.com
