A personal note from Dr. Allen: 

"I was born with a small right leg. It was also dislocated at the hip. I wore braces from the time I was a week old, and the hip was relocated when I was very young.

My parents had a great attitude about all of this. They encouraged me to try everything...including sports! My leg did not grow well and by the time I was 16 years old, my right leg was 13 inches shorter than the left leg.

My right leg was amputated at the knee at age 16. My whole life, the orthopaedic surgeons were my heroes. I decided to become one when I grew up. I actually went to college with the goal of going to medical school and becoming an orthopaedic surgeon!

Being born with a small leg was a blessing because it helped me find the right place and the right profession for me and my patients!"
