Sauerbruch worked at the University of Munich from 1918 to 1927 on operation techniques and diets for treating tuberculosis. From 1928 to 1949, he worked in Berlin, attaining international fame for his risky (but mostly successful) operations. Sauerbruch died in Berlin at the age of 75.
During the war, he was anti-Nazi. His influence on Fritz Kolbe caused the man to become a spy for the Allies. Kolbe was reputedly the most important spy of the war.
