After Dr. Rainer Gruessner received his medical degree from the prestigious Johannes Gutenberg University School of Medicine in 1983, and his professorial thesis and Habilitation from the Philipps University in 1991, he moved to Japan for additional liver transplantation training, and eventually to the University of Minnesota, where he completed a two year fellowship in transplantation surgery.
Dr. Rainer Gruessner used his extensive experience and training early in his career to build a truly impressive resume that includes leadership roles for the past 15 years. He has developed transplantation techniques that other doctors use to save patients around the globe.
His approach to create the best experience for all patients, has produced the first robotically assisted pancreatectomy in 2012, and the first preemptive living donor liver transplant on a baby with oxalosis in 1998. These are techniques that Gruessner pioneered, and doctors across the globe have used them to save countless lives.
Medical literature in the field of general and transplantation surgery hasn’t been the same since Dr. Rainer Gruessner came onto the scene. He has published over 600 book chapters, abstracts, and manuscripts. He has also edited two textbooks that are now standard in medical departments around the world.
He has lectured at over 100 institutions and serves on many editorial boards of medical journals. His focus on the patient and getting them through life-saving treatment with the least amount of hospitalization time and the lowest cost to them has cemented his reputation as a highly accessible, highly innovative and humble surgeon.
