'Octomom' Doctor Accused of Implanting 7 Embryos in New Patient

The fertility doctor who treated "Octomom" Nadya Suleman faces allegations he implanted too many embryos in another patient, causing the death of a fetus, The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

Dr. Michael Kamrava implanted seven embryos in a 48-year-old woman causing her to become pregnant with quadruplets, the Medical Board of California said in a 20-page accusation filed on June 30.

The medically recommended number of embryos is two.

The woman, who became pregnant with quadruplets, suffered a number of complications during the pregnancy and the babies were delivered six weeks early by cesarean section.

The mother lost one fetus during the pregnancy and another was born with "profound developmental delays."

"He placed [the woman] at great risk ... which was confirmed by a quadruplet pregnancy that ended with catastrophic results," the document said.

Also outlined in the accusation from the board was a case in 2009 where Kamrava transferred an embryo into a 42-year-old woman with a history of cancer.

Her ultrasound showed ovarian cysts but the doctor failed to order more tests or get a second opinion to rule out ovarian cancer. After failing to become pregnant she was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer.

Six months ago the board accused Kamrava of a "pattern of gross negligence" in the case of Suleman.

She has 14 children, including the world's longest surviving set of octuplets. All her children were conceived using in vitro fertilization.

In Kamrava's first interview since the birth of the octuplets, screening Tuesday night on ABC, he said her treatment "was done the right way ... under the circumstances."

He faces a medical board hearing in October.
