James Del Bianco

Founder & CPO

James Del Bianco has a love for helping people and providing them with the prosthetic and orthotic care they need. He began his career in 2001 in a private practice setting working alongside experienced clinicians dedicated to patient care.

Following private practice, James spent three years at The University of North Carolina Hospitals. In this setting, James gained valuable experience treating patients of all ages and backgrounds. Opening Del Bianco Prosthetics and Orthotics was James’ mission from his first day in the profession. He is committed to caring for the patients of Del Bianco P&O. James focuses on providing custom orthotic and prosthetic care in a specialized, individual way. His patients have appreciated his expertise and communication in the fitting of their custom devices.

James is an adjunct instructor in the Department of Surgery at the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine. DPO also hosts medical students from Campbell University that include Del Bianco Prosthetics and Orthotics in their rotations. Medical students benefit from excellent exposure to premier patient care.

James lives in Wake County with his wife and six children. He enjoys spending time with his family and traveling to the beach or mountains to enjoy the outdoors. He is also involved in the community with the Interfaith Food Shuttle, Boy Scouts, and a variety of other service and outreach efforts.
