Dr. Michael Kamrava, who treated Nadya “Octomom” Suleman for infertility, was ousted by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, said Sean Tipton, an organization spokesman.
Tipton stressed that the action taken by the society is serious and not taken lightly, nor is it done frequently, and was based solely on Kamrava’s treatment of Suleman, and because he exhibited “a pattern of failure to live up to our standards," Tipton said.
Suleman has claimed Kamrava implanted her with six embryos, which exceeds national guidelines.
The Beverly Hills physician treated Suleman for infertility at a time when she was unmarried, had six children, was unemployed and receiving welfare.
Suleman gave birth to octuplets in January.
Kamrava’s ouster from the national nonprofit society is a separate matter from retaining his license to practice medicine in California, which he still maintains.
