Dr. Rainer Gruessner graduated from the Johannes Gutenberg University School of Medicine in Mainz, Germany, in 1983. Five years later, he was involved in the first transplant with a split pancreas operation. Dr. Gruessner continued his innovative work which influenced a generation of surgeons. In 1997, he developed a technique for living donor intestinal transplants, a technique used by leading transplant centers. In 1998, he became the first to perform a preemptive living donor liver transplant in a child with oxalosis. He became the first to successfully perform a laparoscopic living donor pancreatectomy and nephrectomy in 2000. In 2012, he brought the University of Arizona into the spotlight with the first robot assisted total pancreatectomy with simultaneous islet autotransplant.
