Dr. Gallant has helped Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital patients with cleft palate and many other medical problems for more than 30 years. Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, he has operated on more than 4,000 patients at Johns Hopkins All Children's over more than three decades. A graduate of Yale Medical School, he came to Johns Hopkins All Children's upon completing his fellowship training in pediatric plastic surgery at Case Western Reserve University and founded the cleft palate program at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital. Dr. Gallant also performed surgeries on children with other congenital problems and children who needed reconstructive surgery due to traumatic injuries or acute illnesses like meningococcemia. 

Among the thousands of cleft palate patients Dr. Gallant has treated, there have even been several "second-generation" families, where a child whose cleft lip or palate he repaired years ago is now the parent of a child who needs similar surgery. He gets regular updates from many former patients and is proud to learn of all they have accomplished. In 2012, Dr. Gallant was honored by the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital medical staff with the Council Rudolf Award for excellence in pediatrics. In 2015, he received the Lichtblau Award from the Florida chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics as the surgeon who had done the most for the special-needs children of Florida.

Internationally, Dr. Gallant has helped children with cleft palate and other congenital problems by sharing his expertise with healthcare professionals. Along with other specialists from Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, he has traveled to Moscow and to Latin America to perform cleft palate surgeries and to help native physicians develop programs for these patients.
