Need to replace drain for tile floor?


I want to replace a shower pan with tile floor. My plumber said he would need to go through the ceiling of the condo below us to access and replace the drain. We live in a condo with concrete floors and have a copper drain. Does he really need to go through the ceiling to replace old drain with a new tile-in drain?
