Kayla DeJean
Director of Clinical Research

Kayla is Dr. Cascio’s research and clinic assistant. Dr. Cascio is very interested in patient outcomes: basically, how good you are after surgery compared to how bad you were before surgery. Its Kayla’s job to contact you either in person, by phone, or by email and to ask you questions and sometimes perform measurements of motion and strength. Sometimes, she will ask you questions that may seem weird, but these questions are part of shoulder, hip, or knee surgery SCORES that allow Dr. Cascio to compare how you are doing to before surgery and to other patients who have had the same procedure. Dr. Cascio uses this information to improve his patients’ experience, to teach other surgeons, and to present his outcomes all over the country and even Europe.
