233 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine D r. David Morgan Huchton knew from a young age that he wanted to be a surgeon. Demonstrating proficiency with his hands and desire to help others, he was further inspired to enter the field of otorhinolaryngology – the study of disease of the ear, nose and throat – by his sister, who was born deaf. Determined to help others the same way his sister’s doctors helped his sister, Dr. Huchton has since become a coveted, respected figure in the medical field. Earning an MD from the University of California San Francisco in 1993, Dr. Huchton holds 22 years of experience in the field of medicine. He completed a residency and fellowship at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Hospital in Baltimore focusing his training on head and neck oncologic surgery and microvascular reconstruction. Joining the faculty of The Shannon Hospital in San Angelo, Texas, in 2001, he has since served as chairman of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology. He recently attained the role of president of the medical staff in 2019, a post he will fulfill until 2021. Believing in the importance of hard work and respect, Dr. Huchton advises prospective medical professionals to remain diligent in their endeavors, put forth their best effort and listen intently to patients’ needs. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology, and a fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. As a testament to his success, Dr. Huchton has been named to Super Doctors in light of his contributions to medicine. Looking toward the future, he intends to continue providing patient care in both the office and the operating room.
