    - in Milford, Connecticut |

    In 1987 I had a horrible compound fracture of my elbow, wrist and also had the infection that causes gangrene Dr.Vliegenhart tried to save my arm when no other doctor would have and I am now 37yo and have absolutely no problems with my wrist hand elbow or shoulder. I have been looking for him for years to thank him and let him know how great my arm is still doing. I would recommend him to anyone. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is an amazing surgeon.
