Dr. Philip Mulieri was recently featured in an article about his work for the Danbury News Times:
"You could compare me to a carpenter," Philip Mulieri suggested not long ago when asked to describe what he does.
In a way, he was right. He does repair and replace things, but not of wood. As an orthopedic physician at Danbury Orthopedics who specializes in disorders of the shoulder and elbow, arthroscopy, joint replacement, trauma and sports injuries, he works with bones and muscles.
Dr. Mulieri, who holds American Board of Orthopedic Surgery certification, uses state-of-the-art surgical techniques to perform complex shoulder and elbow reconstructive surgery, and several other shoulder and elbow replacement procedures. State-of-the-art means that computer imaging is used in planning and performing surgical procedures. Using the newest computer technology, he transfers CT scan images to a program which then converts them into three-dimensional images. Those images enable him to "see" all that he will encounter when he performs orthopedic surgery.
