Neurosurgeon in Raleigh

Meet the Doctor

Dr. Robert Lee Allen

Dr. Robert Lee Allen

A Raleigh native, Dr. Robert Lee Allen joined the Raleigh Neurosurgical Clinic–which his father founded—in 1985. He specializes in general neurosurgery, spinal surgery, brain tumors, and trauma.

“First, we give guidance about what’s wrong,” he says. “Frequently, there may be non-surgical ways to calm down the problem.”

“If the method doesn’t respond, we have a surgical treatment that will fix it.”

After earning his medical degree at Bowman Gray School of Medicine, he completed an internship and residency in neurological surgery at Medical University of South Carolina, where he was Chief Resident and Teaching Fellow.

His personal interests include spending time with his family and four precious granddaughters, golf, and North Carolina beaches.
