'Octomom' Doctor's Medical License Revoked
The California medical board has revoked the license of Dr. Michael Kamrava, on the grounds that he committed "gross negligence" by transferring an excessive number of embryos during Nadya Suleman's IVF procedure in 2009. Suleman, 35, is known as the "Octomom" because she gave birth to octuplets later that year.
The board considered two other cases in addition to Suleman's, in one of which Kamrava transferred 7 embryos into a 48-year-old mother. "This is not a one-patient case or a two-patient case; it is a three patient case, and the established causes of discipline include repeated negligent acts (all three patients), gross negligence (two patients) and inadequate records (one patient)," the board said in its report, according to The Telegraph newspaper.
Do you think the medical board is right to revoke Dr. Kamrava's medical license?
