Meet Our Urogynecology Team

Dr. Huffaker is board-certified in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. He collaborates with other providers every day to create a better quality of life for pelvic floor patients. The Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery approach brings together a board-certified urogynecologist, a specially trained nurse practitioner, and a urogynecology nurse coordinator. They collaborate with specialists in colorectal surgery, urology and pelvic floor therapy. They are leaders in their field, and they are pioneering a new standard in pelvic floor care.

A native of East Tennessee, he is the region’s first fellowship-trained sub-specialist in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS),  also known as Urogynecology.  He completed an accredited three-year fellowship at Scott & White Memorial Hospital and Clinic/Texas A&M Health Science Center where he trained with national and international leaders in FPMRS. He received his Doctor of Medicine degree from ETSU’s Quillen College of Medicine followed by residency in OB/GYN at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. He also obtained his Master of Business Administration from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville Physician Executive MBA program. 

Dr. Huffaker has authored several research manuscripts which have been published in various peer-reviewed journals. He is a member of the American Urogynecologic Society, the International Continence Society,  the International Urogynecological Association and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Urinary incontinence is a problem that afflicts millions of Americans, but it is only one of many conditions that can affect the female pelvic area. When those problems occur, women want to turn to someone whose specialized training and expertise will help them return to normal health as soon as possible.

Dr. Huffaker is committed to providing integrated, compassionate care for patients with pelvic floor disorders.  He brings expert training in minimally invasive vaginal reconstructive surgery as well as non-surgical treatment options.
