James K. DeOrio, MD
As a child, I loved giving presents. It gave me great pleasure to select a gift and then present it to the recipient, and watch their face as they opened it. Now, I get to do the same thing for my patients. Removing patient's pain and giving them greater mobility in life is the best gift I could ever give anyone. I am so pleased I have been able to spend my life helping others, and I look forward to helping you.
I am part of an orthopaedic foot and ankle team that offers expert care and treatment for foot pain and injuries and ankle pain and injuries. This includes arthritis, fractures, ankle instability, bunions, claw toes, diabetic foot, hammer toe, heel pain, heel spurs, ligament and tendon injury, plantar fasciitis, rheumatoid foot disorders, and sports-related injuries.

Clinical Focus and Research
Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
