Board Certification

Board Certified in Orthopedic Surgery


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. Dr. Codsi is also a team doctor for the Everett Aquasox minor league baseball team.

Clinical Expertise

Shoulder conditions: rotator cuff tears, biceps tendon tears, impingement syndrome, rotator cuff tendonitis, shoulder instability, shoulder fractures, clavicle fractures, shoulder separations, shoulder replacement, shoulder arthritis
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.

Dr. Codsi remembered me and was very caring. He even asked how my family was! He's great! I have recommended him to several people.I drove to Kirkland to see him because of the excellent care I had received in the past. I'm so glad that I had him do my shoulder replacement in 2020.
