Professor and head of surgery
Born and raised in Italy, Dr. Enrico Benedetti is a prominent leader in solid-organ transplantation and the use of robotic-assisted techniques in transplantation.
He has to his credit many successful surgical firsts, including the first robotic donor nephrectomy for a living-donor kidney transplant, the first combined living-donor liver and bowel transplant from an adult to an infant, the first robotic combined kidney and pancreas procurement for a living-donor transplant, and the largest series of living-donor intestinal transplants in the world.
Benedetti received a classical education in Italy in history, Latin and Greek before pursuing his medical degree. He remains an avid reader of medieval history and speaks Italian, Spanish and English.
