Suspended head of surgery fights for job

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The suspended head of surgery at the University of Arizona is fighting to get his job back.

Attorneys for Dr. Rainer Gruessner have filed a claim against University Physicians Health Care, the Arizona Board of Regents and The University of Arizona.

Gruessner was placed on leave in September but the university has not said why, and it's not responding to the pending suit.

"All Gruessner seeks through the lawsuit is to be reinstated as professor and chairman of the Department of Surgery," his attorney said in a statement.
