About Andres Schanzer

Dr. Andres Schanzer, MD, is an Associate Professor in the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center. He serves as the program director of the Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency Program. He also holds a secondary appointment in the Department of Quantitative Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Schanzer has been actively involved in outcomes research with a focus on developing risk prediction tools to better inform decision-making prior to vascular surgical procedures. The PIII Critical Limb Ischemia Risk score was originally derived using the PREVENT III randomized trial cohort and has now been validated in both the United States and Europe. This risk prediction tool has been widely cited and is now commonly used to predict the likelihood of amputation-free survival after lower extremity bypass for critical limb ischemia. Dr. Schanzer has also been actively involved in generating the risk adjustment models used by the quality improvement group known as the Vascular Surgery Group of New England. This program is now being emulated at the national level by the Society of Vascular Surgery and Dr. Schanzer continues to play an active role through his participation on the Research Advisory Committee.
