During this time, Dr. Allen published multiple papers on benefits and outcomes around bariatric surgery and its treatment in metabolic disease. Dr. Allen is excited to start her practice at St. Francis Hospital providing laparoscopic and robotic procedures for obesity, including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric banding and revision of prior bariatric surgery.
