Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder System featuring Timothy P. Codd, MD

What Dr. Codd’s Patients Have to Say…

  • Dr. Tim has helped me with both of my shoulders. After years of cortisone injections, he suggested a reverse shoulder procedure. I told him that’s anatomically incorrect. He said, “Yes, it is, but I can do that!” I have friends who can’t lift their hand above their head. I’m 85 and I am able to keep playing tennis.
