Meet Dr. Allan

Dr. Bruce Allan, PhD, MD, FRCS(C), is the heart of the Allan Centre. Highly respected by the women he treats, their families and the medical community, he is one of Calgary and Canada’s best-known and most trusted obstetrician-gynecologists. Dr. Allan is noted for the atmosphere of trust and respect he has fostered and his ability to put his patients at ease.

Dr. Allan’s training as a specialized gynecologist enables him to understand all aspects of a woman’s cosmetic, gynecologic and sexual health concerns.  Only a certified gynecologist has the training and expertise to address all the areas of genital, vulvar, vaginal and labial health and wellness, and the very specialized surgeries to address these very intimate areas.

Education and Training

Dr. Allan obtained his undergraduate degree in science from the University of Manitoba and did graduate work at the University of Alberta, obtaining a PhD in genetics. He received his Medical degree from the University of Calgary and completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Calgary. He is currently both a staff surgeon and the Chief of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the South Health Campus hospital in Calgary. He has a special interest and advanced training in all types of vaginal cosmetic surgery. This special interest, and inquiries from his patients, led Dr. Allan to train with Dr. David Matlock at the Beverly Hills Surgery Center where he perfected his female genital cosmetic surgery techniques.

Both Dr. Allan and Melissa have been diligent in following up post op and are quick to respond to any questions. Recovery has been smooth sailing with absolutely no pain.

I cannot say enough about the amazing treatment I received at the Allan Center! From my first contact with Melissa at the office, to booking my appointment, the surgery and in the aftercare; everything was exactly how I expected it to be. Absolutely first class and professional. My results were great. Let’s be honest, I did have discomfort and concerns afterwards; but Dr Allan made himself available to answer my questions and make me feel at ease. And as a result of the perioneoplasty, my sensation is greatly improved, and sex feels so much better!

I am so happy I found this clinic everyone made me feel extremely comfortable, when I went to other clinics I felt judged and not cared for. Dr Allan made this so simple and comforting, he did an amazing job I can’t belive how uncomplicated he made the process . Definitely happy to say the least.
