Whipples procedure
"Mr Dirkin was my saw me at stoke hospital last year ( Nov 2020 ) after i was told there was a small tumor on my pancreas , he explained what he would do in great detail and made me feel at ease .
Within 5 days i was being operated on for around 6hrs by mr Dirkin and a team of surgeons , next morning he came to see me on the ward and explained what he had done .Whithin 8 days i was back home resting with no complications .
He was my saviour and i thank him and the team from the bottom of my heart .

One of the best Upper G I surgeons in the country
"Operated on me a few years ago for a blocked bile duct, Explained everything in detail beforehand, very re-assuring manner, makes things easy to understand. If you have him as your consultant you just won the lottery. Cannot praise him and his staff enough. Great sense of humour and friendly manner."

Saved my life!
"Mr Durkin operated on me after I had been rushed to North Staffs Hospital on Sunday 17th Aug '20 with a suspected gall bladder problem and possibly gall stones. At the beginning I believed perhaps things would improve by the following day (big mistake!) so Mr Durkin allotted me the time and next morning he took another look at me again. Now I was feeling so much worse. He then advised he believed the gall bladder had perforated and I need to be operated on that morning. I didn't hesitate to follow his advice. Thank goodness I did! The man was spot on, my gall bladder had perforated. I have been back home for two days and am improving and feeling so much better each day - little by little.
To say I am grateful the Mr Durkin is totally inadequate, if he hadn't been as positive with me as he was about having the operation immediately...well who knows?Sandra Little
