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 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.

Elbow conditions: tennis elbow, biceps tears, elbow arthroscopy

Philosophy of Care

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 you understand exactly what's wrong with your shoulder and thoroughly understand the treatment plan we discussed.
I make sure you understand your 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!

Community Involvement

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.

Dr Codsi performed surgery on my right shoulder years ago, & has found a way to reduce pain, maintain function & prevent or delay going back in.

Extremely professional genuinely kind. Put no pressure upon me for a decision. Came highly recommended

The one thing that I would suggest to Dr. Codsi is to explain to shoulder surgery patients that the recovery time for shoulders is usually longer and more intense than an elbow or a wrist. I expected to heal more quickly than I did.
