Dr. Galland began his career in Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine while serving in the United States Navy at Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. There he served as Chief of Orthopedic Surgery and received numerous awards and commendations for both leadership and excellence in treating the musculoskeletal and sports injuries common among sailors and marines. The broad experience in sports medicine Dr. Galland received during his service in the Navy complemented the training he received at Tulane University in his home state of Louisiana.
Dr. Galland demonstrated an early affinity for the treatment of injured athletes during his residency training under renowned sports medicine specialist, Michael Brunet, M.D. The relationship between Dr. Galland and Dr. Brunet had a profound effect on his practice style and approach to complex sports injuries. Dr. Galland had abundant opportunity to refine that approach when he was selected to serve as assistant team physician to both the undefeated Tulane University football team and Tulane men's basketball team. He also served as team physician to several local high schools and colleges including Dillard and Xavier Universities.
Since joining Orthopaedic Specialists of North Carolina, Dr. Galland has continued his commitment and dedication to the treatment of injured athletes. He currently serves as team physician and Orthopaedic consultant to the Carolina Mudcats, the Advanced A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians Major League Baseball team; medical director and orthopaedic consultant to the Louisburg College Athletic Program, medical director of the Barton College athletic program, adjunct clinical professor at Marietta College, and team physician and Orthopaedic consultant to several area high schools.
Dr. Galland has authored many book chapters and papers in sports medicine. His advice and consultation has been sought by world-class athletes of track and field and Major League Baseball. His passion for resolving musculoskeletal ailments and injuries in the most conservative manner possible puts all his patients in the most capable and caring of hands.
