The Doctor Who Performed The Procedure Had His License Revoked

Dr. Michael Kamrava, a fertility specialist, treated Suleman. As a result of her octuplet pregnancy, he lost his license in 2011.

His involvement was described as "gross negligence." He faced charges from other cases of "repeated negligent acts for an excessive number of embryo transfers."
