Experience
Dr. Michael Codsi is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in shoulder and elbow repair. During his orthopedic residency, Dr. Codsi learned how to perform joint replacement and tendon/ligament repairs from the surgeons who invented the procedures. During his fellowship, he spent three years researching the biomechanics of shoulder implants, the biology of tendon healing and the outcomes of complex shoulder reconstructions. That work was eventually was awarded a Cleveland Clinic Innovations award.
Since moving to the Seattle area, Dr. Codsi has continued his research on rotator cuff repairs and he helps educate clinicians, therapists and patients with educational seminars. He recently completed a rotator cuff repair study with 13 other study centers around the country, the results of which were published in two orthopedic surgery journals in 2013. He is also a team doctor for the Everett Aquasox minor league baseball team.
Philosophy
Some conditions have simple, straightforward treatments while other have multiple treatment options that require an understanding of the risks and benefits of each treatment. That's why I work really hard to make sure my patients understand exactly what's wrong with their shoulder and thoroughly understand the treatment plan we discussed.
I make sure my patients understand their options before offering my advice about which option to choose. I like to think patients appreciate my care because I make them feel confident that they are getting the best treatment that will help them get back to their normal activities.
Personal Information
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young kids who love to play sports and generally wear me out. They like to tell people that their dad fixes shoulders and their mom fixes everything else!
In the Community
My wife and I enjoy supporting our favorite charity Tree House, which is a non-profit organization that gives foster children in King County a better chance to succeed.

I greatly appreciate Dr. Codsi's knowledge and "bed side" manner. He listens and doesn't make you feel like he needs to be somewhere. He makes you feel like you are important and worth his time.
