Octomom’s Fertility Doctor Accused of Malpractice by California Medical Board

Posted under Uncategorized

According to The Los Angeles Times, “The Medical Board of California has accused the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who treated octuplets mother Nadya Suleman of transferring too many embryos in a second woman and failing to order additional tests for a patient suffering from stage 3 ovarian cancer.”

Dr. Michael Kamrava implanted seven embryos in a 48-year-old patient. The medically accepted number is two. The woman then found out she was having quadruplets. Problems with the pregnancy caused the babies to be delivered six weeks early in a C-section. The L.A. Times reports, “The mother lost one fetus during the pregnancy, and another was born with ‘profound developmental delays.'”

Another incident revealed that Kamrava impanted an embryo into a woman with a history of cancer. An ultrasound revealed signs of cancer, but the doctor implanted the embryo anyway. She was unable to become pregnant and decided to try another doctor. That doctor diagnosed her with stage 3 ovarian cancer.

You trust doctors with your life. When they violate that trust, you can suffer from severe consequences, including becoming injured or sick, your condition worsening, even death.
