“I endeavor to provide the kind of care that I would provide to my father or my mother.”
Dr. Allio practices the full breadth of general urology, including oncology, stone disease, and enlarged prostate. He also offers reconstructive urology and endoscopic and robotic-assisted surgery.
A specialty of Dr. Allio’s is the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. Through his treatments, such as using the UroLift® System or Rezūm, he uses a minimally invasive approach that provides rapid relief and recovery of BPH symptoms that can get men off BPH medications and avoid major surgery.
Designated as a Center of Excellence for Rezūm™ Water Vapor Therapy

As far back as Dr. Bryce Allio can remember, he always wanted to be a physician. “I always enjoyed science and biology, and adding patient interactions with these subjects always seemed like the only track for me.”
He decided to specialize in urology at a conference where he heard urologists discuss reconstructing the urinary tract of someone who had their bladder removed due to cancer. “It seemed to me to be one of the most interesting things I heard of any surgeon doing.”
Dr. Allio finds robotic-assisted surgery especially exciting. “It’s essentially a laparoscopic surgery. But the mechanisms are controlled through a robot that the surgeon controls, which allows for more detailed movements of the laparoscopic instruments. Patients experience less discomfort and quicker recovery times, with better quality-of-life outcomes. It’s exciting to be on the cutting edge.”
Outside his practice, Dr. Allio and his wife enjoy the outdoors. “Any three-day weekend, we’re going backpacking, no matter what the weather.”
