Codman Shoulder Society

est. 2014
A group committed to recording the "end result" for every patient, determining best practices and optimizing outcomes in shoulder surgery, just as Dr. Codman envisioned.

"Give me something that is different, for there is a chance of it being better..."


The Codman Shoulder Society (CSS) is a group consisting of Dr. Warner and Dr. Higgins' former fellows that meets annually at the conclusion of the San Diego Shoulder Institute held in June. Our alumni group was given this name in honor of the father of the "End-Result" concept, Dr. Ernest Amory Codman. The CSS and its annual meeting are used to foster development of former fellows' careers and simultaneously provide evidence-based work to support shoulder care. 


Our mission is to look for questions worth answering and then to partner together to do so as an international consortium of orthopedic surgeons.

"The common sense notion that every hospital should follow every patient it treats, long enough to determine whether or not the treatment has been successful, and then to inquire, 'If not, why not?' with a view to preventing similar failures in the future"
