Dr. Mark Galland
Raleigh, NC

Rated 10 out of 10 on 02/24/17

last comment added     Upon hearing that my daughter was in need of an ACL reconstruction, Dr. Galland was highly recommended by several orthopaedic doctors. Our initial visit with Galland was impressive. He took the time to really delve into the different options we had, his explanations were clear and concise, and his demeanor was comforting. Several doctors we've visited have what I call the "God complex": haughty, off-putting behavior; making me feel as though I'm wasting time asking insignificant questions, or simply not letting me ask them by repeatedly talking over me. Galland was refreshing in this regard, and I'm half tempted to nickname him Patch Adams for his exemplary bedside manner.
    Additionally, I'm the type who likes to plan. I need a detailed map of how to get from point 'A' to point 'B.' Due to the nature of this surgery, we were given knowledgeable, professional opinions by Galland, and I was initially uncomfortable about the open-ended path my daughter was to undergo. That line of thinking was simply naivety and ignorance on my part. I'm extremely thankful that this particular doctor wanted to gauge his decisions based on what he saw during surgery. Let me rewind. With an ACL reconstruction, one can take one of three paths: autograft (harvested from patient's body) from the quad, hamstring or patellar tendon; allograft (harvested from a cadaver); a combination of allograft and autograft.  The considerations are not only extensive but individual. The fluidity of Galland's course of action is commendable. Had my daughter not had enough to harvest from any said area, he had plan 'B' through 'Z' in place. Furthermore, I was skeptical about a supplemental procedure he recommended: repairing the ALL in conjunction with the ACL. If you're a candidate for an ACL reconstruction, do your own research on this.
    When family members and friends heard that my daughter had to have extensive surgery, the overwhelming response was to obtain a second opinion. We were perfectly happy with Galland, but we did. When I questioned the second surgeon about the ALL repair, he said, "We only do that when someone is in for a revision (a second ACL reconstruction)." This is where having those initials behind your name doesn't matter, and your good old common sense kicks in. Why in the heck wouldn't this practice do it right the first time? More importantly, why would I put my child through a second, invasive surgery and subsequent long recovery? I kept my opinions to myself hoping that my teenaged daughter would tell me where her instincts were leading her.  Apparently, it didn't even take being an adult for my child to reach the same conclusion. I'm glad we obtained that second opinion; we held Galland in even higher esteem.
    Surgery. It went like clockwork, and I'm firmly convinced that Galland has more talent in his pinky than half of Raleigh combined. Having been to physical therapy with my daughter, I've seen incisions and heard horror stories about revisions. Galland performed the most minimally invasive procedure for this surgery as possible. Currently, my daughter is two months post-op, and thus far, everything has been a success. Of particular mention, Galland's staff was-and continues to be-friendly and accommodating with and responsive to our needs.

last comment added This clown said he finished medical school at the age of 22 and he is no genius. He has only worked for WCB. He is pleasant enough but he does no listen. He ignored my complaint of tingling and numbness and in his reiteration of his diagnosis it was based on my not having tingling and numbness. He also was not in receipt of GP and chiropractor reports and based his diagnosis on a report from 3 years prior. He was also not in receipt of documentation of the current re injury. He failed to recognize Kemp's and Yeoman's positive signs and diagnosed incorrectly.  And all he does is back assessments for WCB. If you have to see him ask for another physician. He should not be practicing.
