‘Oc­to­mom’ doc­tor slammed by panel

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

LOS AN­GE­LES — The fer­til­ity doc­tor for “Oc­to­mom” Nadya Sule­man im­planted too many em­bryos in an­other pa­tient, re­sult­ing in the death of a fe­tus, ac­cord­ing to the state li­cens­ing board. The Med­i­cal Board of Cal­i­for­nia said that Dr. Michael Kam­rava acted with neg­li­gence in Septem­ber 2008 when he im­planted seven em­bryos in a 48-year-old woman. Four of the em­bryos be­came vi­able, but the woman lost one dur­ing preg­nancy and gave birth to triplets, one of whom has pro­found de­vel­op­men­tal de­lays, the board said.
