Fertility Group Boots Octomom's Doc

10/19/2009 6:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The doc who pumped Octomom full of the embryos that led to her octuplets has been officially expelled from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

Kamrava/Suleman
While they didn't specifically blame their decision on his work with Nadya Suleman, the group of infertility professionals claimed Michael Kamrava repeatedly violated their standards -- which included a guideline to only implant one or two embryos in patients under age 35 to reduce the risk of multiple births.

Kamrava pumped six embryos in to Nadya Suleman.

FYI -- the ASRM does not have the authority to pull a medical license, so Kamrava is still free to do his thing.

Actually, it is against the recommended medical association guidelines to implant more than 2 embryos in women under 35, and strongly frowned upon with women over 35. In fact, it is also against medical guidelines to even do the IVF procedure after she's had it done so many times before (6 times to be exact) as the embryos are more likely to split and the risk of severe birth defects is very high. While children born with birth defects deserve to be loved, it is still highly unethical and completely irresponsible to act in reckless disregard of the children's health and well being which is exactly what was done by both this doctor and octomom. The fact that this doctor was unethical, does not mean all endocrinologists are. Most follow guidelines and are very ethical. Unfortunately, this doc is not the only unethical one in the practice field. Don't be swayed from the amazing work being done by these docs and not see one if you need one, just do your homework first to make sure you are hiring a good one.

Good they need to take it away so he can not cost the hard working tax payers any more money...I could be taking my tax money and using in on my kids..not this Lazy woman...I have no problem helping the children it's not there fault but I have problems with this woman who has not worked in 10 yrs.. a woman who is on assistance barley taking care of her children.. get cosmetic work done.. and invtro treatments.. and then gets a a house which she is not paying for.. omg make this doc since he help create all these childen she should pay for half there expensise.. and octo mom should be made to get a f.. job..because this is an example of what people are really going to start doing just so they don't need to work...and since she has money to do all these things but take care of her children she should be paying back some of that money..Califorina can't take anymore women doing this..at least jon and kate's money anit coming form tax payers..

I'm glad to see he was booted out of the fertility association, but there should have been some kind of stricter penalty for this doctor besides that. He should have had a suspension in his license to practice medicine at the very least, what he did was completely unprofessional...he risked the lives of not only the mother, but each one of those babies when he did that procedure. I don't know if he understands the oath he took when he became a doctor, risking lives is not the same as saving them!!

They were in it for the money    

I think this dcotors punishment should be for him to support these children, damned farmer in the dell. California should make him pay for doing this, why not? She did this to get on easy street. She needs to go live Heene, fly off on his next balloon.

This is so non news, it's a joke.

The American Society of Reproductive Medicine is nothing more than a voluntary membership club. All you have to do is pay $250 a year to join, and you get a nice magazine every month. It's meaningless. Some of the best fertility doctors in the country aren't even members. There are much more important societies than them that the real good fertility doctors are members of, and even they are voluntary membership. All they did was lose $250 a year, and put $250 a year back in the doctor's pocket. Their guidelines have no power and they are classified as "voluntary guidelines for their members".

6. He may not necessarily be "free" to do his thing. Anytime your credentials change or certification changes the medical board reviews your license to practice...so there may be consequences down the road.

Octomom is gross! I can't believe she had all them kids in hopes of being famous. Also, does she expect a man to settle down w/ her? She's nasty, has a litter of baggage and seems to be mentally unstable.

He did not implant six embroyos, he implanted eight. If he only implanted six, this welfare queen would have identical twins, which she does not have. Do they think people are stupid....oh yeah, they do. Is this leech EVER going to get a job and to pay for this mess she has created?

uhHuh    

HIS MEDICAL LICENSE SHOULD BE REVOKED BASED ON HIS LACK OF MORALS & IRRESPONSIBILITY.
HE SHOULD BE PAYING CHILD SUPPORT FOR HIS UNETHICAL PRACTICE RATHER THAN THE TAXPAYERS OF CALIFORNIA, WHICH IS NOW BROKE BTW.
