Brittany Stresing, CPO FAAOP

Brittany Stresing, CPO, FAAOP is a Nationally Certified Prosthetist & Orthotist, Fellow of the American Academy of Orthotists & Prosthetists, and is the Founder and President of LimBionics of Durham. LimBionics is a premier Prosthetic & Orthotic (P&O) facility with multiple locations throughout North Carolina. Prosthetics is the profession of evaluating, designing, fabricating, fitting, and aligning prosthetic limbs and body parts. Orthotics utilizes braces and technology to improve function, inhibit pain and improve quality of life.

Brittany acquired her unique passion for the profession during her early teenage years as she received orthotic treatment for scoliosis, leg length surgery, and other spinal issues.

Brittany was able to learn a great deal through her medical and orthotic treatment. She has a genuine understanding of how to properly treat, respect and listen to patients. To achieve optimal results and enhance patient compliance, Brittany feels that being passionate about her work, individualizing treatment plans and maintaining a patient-focused perspective are necessary for successful outcomes. Additionally, as prosthetic and orthotic technology evolves, Brittany makes it a priority to constantly research and provide cutting-edge devices for her patients.

After completing her dual residency and subsequent employment at University Of North Carolina Hospital (Level 1 Trauma), Brittany transitioned to Lead Practitioner of a private P&O practice where she was able to triple gross revenue within a year and later became manager of the practice. During this time Brittany gained a reputation for taking on difficult cases and providing her patients with unrivaled medical care and respect. Brittany had always dreamed of starting her own practice and her success provided the validation and motivation to begin that journey.

As an unconstrained and self-reliant business owner, Brittany’s success and company have continued to grow. In 2015 she was awarded Healthcare Hero Rising Star by the Triangle Business Journal and Woman Of Achievement by Durham Magazine. Brittany has also achieved one of the highest accolades in the profession, becoming a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthotists, Prosthetists and Pedorthists (AAOP). She was the first woman selected for Ossur’s Women’s Leadership Initiative Program, which promotes and cultivates female leaders in the P&O field.

Marco T. Calcagno, CPO

Marco graduated from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, in 1992 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education. He went on to receive a second Bachelor’s Degree specifically in Prosthetics and Orthotics from Florida International University in Miami, Florida. Upon graduation, Marco performed his residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and worked extensively throughout South Florida from 1994 thru 1999.

While in Florida, Marco was a Practice Manager for a national prosthetics and orthotics company. His extensive work for patient advocacy and fair insurance coverage for all eventually led him to be elected to the Board for Orthotics and Prosthetics for the State of Florida.

This position carried a 2 year term at the State level and was created to help oversee that state’s Licensure Law. While a member of the Florida Board of Orthotists and Prosthetists, he chaired the Unlicensed Activity Committee; responding to complaints regarding illegal and fraudulent activity by unscrupulous providers.

In 2006, Marco moved to North Carolina to start his own practice and began working throughout the Research Triangle region all the way to the coast of North Carolina. As a part owner of a local prosthetics company, Marco was able to cultivate relationships with many of the area’s best doctors and therapists. In 2013, Marco opened Limbionics of Raleigh with renewed focus on patient care, quality outcomes, and service to all that are in need.
