Dr. Mark Codner has died, according to a statement posted online on June. 5, 2020.
We learned of the deceased through the following tribute posted on social media.,
t is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of our esteemed colleague, member and friend Dr. Mark Codner, who passed away in his sleep at home yesterday far too early and unexpectedly.
Dr. Codner was a pioneering colleague, especially in the field of periorbital and breast surgery. Numerous publications and educational events can be credited to his name. His textbooks on eyelid and periorbital surgery are considered the gold standard worldwide. It was a great honor for our society to be able to co-chair the famous Atlanta Oculoplastic Meeting this January under his care as President of the Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.
With Dr. Codner we lose one of the leading authorities in the field of oculoplastic surgery, a dedicated member and friend.
Personally, I am losing a long-time companion, mentor and role modell. We still had so many projects planned…
Our thoughts are with his wife Jane and their children. Dr. Dirk Richter, ISAPS President
