Octomom's Doc Booted From Society of Reproductive Medicine

By Brett Israel | October 20, 2009 11:31 am

iStock-babies-webDr. Michael Kamrava, the doctor who implanted “octomom” Nadya Suleman’s eight embryos (which, of course, became eight babies), has been kicked out of the Society of Reproductive Medicine for a “pattern of behavior” detrimental to the industry, according to a spokesman for the association. This sounds like a big deal, but it really doesn’t mean anything, since the Beverly Hills fertility doctor still has his license, so he’s free to continue stuffing women full of an unhealthy numbers of embryos.

From the Los Angeles Times:

The disciplinary action was approved by the association’s board in September and first reported over the weekend by USA Today. The move does not bar Dr. Michael Kamrava from continuing to practice, but sends a strong signal to prospective patients that the doctor’s standards and history are outside the group’s acceptable limits.

It’s a nice gesture, though whether it makes any difference remains to be seen. After all, it doesn’t seem like the patients that seek out Dr. Kamrava are not really all that concerned with what the Society of Reproductive Medicine has to say.

    This man is crazy to allow this to happen. And nothing really happens to him. Maybe HE should support those 8 kids. How infuriating for those mom’s that try and conceive one child through this process. This idiot mom is about as low as you can go. No one can care for this many children. How come 6 weren’t enough especially when she had special needs children? She isn’t a mom as she thought of no one but herself. I sure won’t be watching any show she is on.
