The doctor who gave fertility treatments to the California woman who had octuplets earlier this has been expelled from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
Dr. Michael Kamrava of Beverly Hills was removed last month because he repeatedly violated the group's standards, society spokesman Sean Tipton said Monday, the Associated Press reported. He added that Kamrava wasn't expelled because of his work with any single patient.
While the action may harm Kamrava's prestige, it won't stop him from practicing medicine because the association doesn't have that kind of legal authority.
Kamrava implanted six embryos in Nadya Suleman, far more than national guidelines specify, the AP reported. Suleman gave birth to octuplets in January.
