Dr. Durbin holds board certification through the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

He completed fellowship training in hand surgery and microvascular procedures at the University of Utah. Fellowship training provides an additional, sixth year of orthopaedic surgery for physicians following their five years of residency training.

Dr. Durbin completed his residency at the University of Indiana Medical Center.

Dr. Durbin is currently working on an orthopaedic research project to assess the performance of an implant to replace damaged bone in the forearm. The implant is made of pyrocarbon, a form of carbon similar to graphite that is known for its durability. Several other physicians at OCR are also participating in this research, which has been approved by the University of Colorado Health (Poudre Valley Health System) Institutional Review Board (IRB).
