About Dr. Schwartz

Samuel Schwartz, MD, FACS, FSVS, RPVI is a vascular and endovascular surgeon at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC). He comes to ARMC after working as a staff surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston for nearly 4 years.

A native of Southern California, Dr. Schwartz is teaming up with ARMC’s vascular and endovascular surgeon Dr. Keith Glover to continue to build ARMC’s developing vascular and endovascular surgery service.

Dr. Schwartz is trained and has experience in the very latest endovascular surgery techniques, including orbital and rotational atherectomy (minimally invasive removal of arterial plaque) as well as transradial access treatment of infrainguinal arterial disease. While at MGH, he was a Principal Investigator for the percutaneous bypass FDA trial, as well as the TORUS2 covered stent trial. Now at ARMC, he is hopeful to build a limb salvage program utilizing some of these newer surgical procedures.

After earning his Doctor of Medicine degree at the University of California, Los Angeles, Dr. Schwartz completed his general surgery residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance. He then moved on to MGH, an affiliated hospital of Harvard Medical School, where he completed a two-year vascular and endovascular clinical and research fellowship. In 2019, Dr. Schwartz was appointed as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and was Associate Program Director of the Vascular Surgery Residency and Fellowship at MGH.
