The doctor who helped a Nadya Suleman become “Octomom,” has been stripped of his medical license. His license will officially be revoked next month.

The Medical Board of California accused Dr. Michael Kamrava of not exercising “sound judgment” by transferring 12 embryos to Suleman. The average for a woman of her age (30) is two or three.

Suleman had the eight children in January 2009 through In vitro fertilization (IVF) from Dr. Kamrava. She also used IVF for her six previous children. The process involves removing the eggs and letting sperm fertilize them in a fluid medium.

An investigation was launched shortly after the birth of the octuplets. When Kamrava’s practices were in question. In a hearing of his licensing, Dr. Kamrava admitted to implanting 12 embryos into Suleman.

Implantation of embryos isn’t the only reason Kamrava’s license will be revoked. He’s being accused of “gross negligence” for agreeing to go through with the procedure and for his treatment of at least two other patients.

“Public protection is paramount. The board is not assured that oversight through probation is enough, and having weighed the above, has determined that revocation of respondent’s certificate is necessary to protect the public,” the Board stated.

“Octomom” was nationally covered on the news once word got out about the octuplets. She made appearances on different shows to explain why she had the children.

Suleman is unemployed, and was receiving disability from 2002-2008 after she suffered a back injury.
