About Dr. Allen
Dr. Allen is especially skilled in the area of general urological surgery and is one of the few doctors in the North Texas area who offers robotic surgery as a treatment option for prostate cancer. The da Vinci robotic prostatectomy is a procedure that he has performed time and time again on patients. The technically advanced system seamlessly translates the movements of Dr. Allen’s hand, wrist and fingers into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments that work inside the patient. It is a procedure that has been proven to be more effective, quicker to perform, and dramatically less invasive than traditional surgery.
Dr. Allen graduated with highest honors from the University of Texas at Austin and he earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio, where he was chosen for membership in Alpha Omega Alpha, the medical honor society. He completed his internship and residencies in surgery and in urology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, TN and was ranked in the top percent of doctors for research quality by U.S. News & World Report.
