Dr. Kieran Cody of Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists has been recognized by the Ann Silverman Community Health Clinic for his volunteer work at the clinic, receiving its Volunteer Physician of the Year Award for 2018.

The Ann Silverman Community Health Clinic, formerly known as the Free Clinic of Doylestown, based in Doylestown Hospital, annually honors the medical professional who has made the greatest positive impact for both the clinic and their patients.

Cody is the only orthopedic surgeon in the region to volunteer in the clinic. He spends one afternoon per month in the clinic, in addition to surgical time, for the past 10 years. He sees patients, listens to their concerns, answers pressing questions, and provides treatment, including surgery as needed.

Cody has also partnered with Jefferson Imaging-Doylestown MRI to provide MRI services and performs surgeries at Doylestown Hospital, all at no cost to the patient.

The award was presented during a recent reception to celebrate volunteers at the Doylestown Country Club. Clinic Executive Director Sally Fabian-Oresic presented the award to Cody’s great surprise during the evening’s festivities. She remarked that the medical and surgical services he offers are invaluable to those in need, and expressed gratitude and appreciation on behalf of the many patients who have been able to get back to their lives thanks to Cody’s service.

Also recognized was Cody’s father, Kevin Cody, Ph.D., who has volunteered at the clinic for 19 years.
