Kevin Pillifant

Clinical-Translational Research Assistant

Kevin joined the Steadman Philippon Research Institute Center for Regenerative Sports Medicine in April 2016 after spending 3 years as a physician extender with Dr. Steadman and Dr. Singleton in The Steadman Clinic.  He grew up in sunny Sarasota, FL playing baseball. After playing semiprofessional baseball, Kevin landed a career with the Chicago White Sox as a certified athletic trainer which lasted 15 years.  During his time with the White Sox, he served as the head athletic trainer for the US Paralympic Ski Team during the winter months.  He was selected to provide his athletic training skills at the 2010 Paralympic Games in Vancouver.  He has always enjoyed working with extreme sports and continues to be a lead athletic trainer for the medical staff at the ESPN X Games in Aspen each year.  

The desire for biomechanics and proper alignment to be more addressed in sports, led Kevin to complete his yoga teacher certification.  He is currently designing sport specific yoga routines for professional athletes.  He is also beginning to teach yoga classes throughout the Vail Valley.  His passion for personal and professional growth has driven him towards leadership workshops and seminars.  He was recently selected to attend Leaders in Sport- Sport Performance Summit in New York in June 2016.

In SPRI, Kevin joins the team with the Center of Regenerative Sports Medicine.  He will serve as a clinical-translational scientist bridging the gap between bench science and the clinical applications of PRP and Bone Marrow injections.  He will continue to educate patients on orthobiologic applications and ongoing research studies performed at SPRI.  He is very excited about this unique opportunity to join Dr. Huard and the rest of the CRSM team at SPRI.

In his free time, he enjoys cruising on his bike or hopping on his snowboard.  He has been known to medal in a handful of snowshoe races throughout the winter months.  Lately, his time has been spent with his wife, Jocelyn and their new baby girl, Aveline.  They thoroughly enjoy their home in beautiful Eagle, CO along with their dog (Porter), cat (Alice) and quarter horse (Dixie).
