View CV

Dr. Alexander LeGrand moved to Bozeman and joined Bridger Orthopedics in 2007 as a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine. In addition, he holds a certificate of added qualification in Sports Medicine. His operative practice is exclusively knee and shoulder advanced arthroscopic and open procedures, including ACL Reconstruction, Knee Arthroscopy, Shoulder Arthroscopy, Meniscal Transplantation, Cartlidge Restoration and Osteotomies. His practice philosophy is to help patients recover from injury with treatment that is highly customized to the individual. He utilizes non-operative care, injection treatment and biologic optimization, as well as providing patients with expert surgical care when indicated.

A native of Australia, Dr. LeGrand grew up near Melbourne. He attended and graduated from Duke University School of Medicine where he completed his Orthopaedic Surgical Internship and Residency, where he filled the position of assistant team physician for the Duke Blue Devils Basketball team during his tenure. He subsequently completed a Sports Medicine Knee and Shoulder Surgery Fellowship at The University of Utah.

In his time with Bridger Orthopedic, Dr. LeGrand has treated thousands of elite and recreational athletes, as well as broad spectrum of patients injured in non-athletic activities. He has dedicated his time to Montana State University as a team physician, with Bozeman High School and Belgrade High Schools, and as a team physician for the US Ski and Snowboard teams. Purposefully acting to advance the science of exercise, he and his team work with athletes to diagnose, treat, and prevent sports related injuries, exhausting all appropriate non-surgical treatment options when available. With cases that require surgical intervention to help athletes return to competitive status, or with patients wanting to regain the ability to participate in the activities they love, Dr. LeGrand champions rigorous, objective testing to ensure athletes are ready to resume athletic activities.

Dr. LeGrand’s practice has become very focused on both knee and shoulder instability. Having completed nearly 2000 ACL reconstructions, he pioneered the use of quadriceps tendon autograft for primary ACL reconstructions in the state of Montana. He continues to utilize ground-breaking methods including performing ACL primary reconstruction and revisions with quad tendon autograft, patella tendon autograft, and allograft through anatomic techniques. His practice also sees a high volume of patients for treatment of patellofemoral instability utilizing both osteotomies and soft tissue to complete stable reconstructions. Dr. LeGrand regularly performs shoulder instability surgery focusing on arthroscopic anterior and posterior labral repairs, remplissage and open stabilizations, including Latarjet.

As a steadfast proponent of new, scientifically tested, and proven techniques and technology, Dr. LeGrand has been actively utilizing peptides for many years and is excited to bring those to his larger patient base at Bridger Orthopedics. These peptides are known to expedite and improve recovery and performance. He is also a member of the Age Management Medicine Group, an organization promoting a proactive, preventative approach to patient care. AMMG is focused on preservation of optimum human function and quality of life, improving a patient's overall health, and helping prevent problems that can arise with age.

Patient Testimonials

I was experiencing considerable pain in my right shoulder for months that completely kept me from enjoying anything. I just could not function. I went to Dr. LeGrande and he was absolutely marvelous in helping solve my problem. As he can attest, my shoulder ailment was certainly a challenge. He literally spent weeks trying to diagnose the problem. He never gave up. When we finally decided that surgery was necessary, I know he was skeptical, put he persisted. His skills as a surgeon and knowledge of shoulder issues are unparalleled. I have had other surgeries, but on the day of the surgery, he actually visited me during the preparation phase. No other doctor has ever done that. He was very reassuring and I must commend him for that. After the surgery, it was the same care and compassion from him. When the pain medications subsided, I could immediately tell that he found the problem (in this case, numerous problems). I am now able to enjoy my life and do the things I have always done. I certainly made a good choice in coming to him. Competent, sensitive physicians like him are the prize of the medical profession. Thank you so much.

"Keep up the good job. You are awesome."

"My knee is great!  Thank you so much for fixing it. The knee feels better after a day of hard working even more than my non-operative knee. I can't believe I am getting so much mileage out of it this year. Thanks Doc."
