Kirk Aadalen, MD

Orthopedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship
Bloomington

Gordon Aamoth, MD

Non-Operative Orthopedics
Bloomington

I have three passions in life: work, family, and golf. I’m lucky to be an orthopedic surgeon, and look forward to every day I’m here at TRIA. In my profession, I have been honored both locally and nationally. I recently retired for a few months and made the decision to come back to TRIA because I enjoy treating patients and offering them the best and most efficient care.

Mark Alexander, MD, CAQ

Family Medicine/Musculoskeletal Primary Care/Sports Medicine Fellowship
Bloomington

As a former athlete myself, I try to put myself in the position of the patient. I understand what it means to be held out of the sports that they love and try to do everything to get them back as soon as possible. In addition, I have three kids of my own and I understand what parents are going through when their kids are injured. I try to let them know what I would do if it were my own child.

Elizabeth Arendt, MD

Orthopedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship
Bloomington

As a sports medicine fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon, I have a special interest in the knee including: patellofemoral dislocations, knee arthroplasty knee ligament reconstruction, cartilage repair, ACL injuries and diseases or injuries of the kneecap joint. I have always had a love of sports, and am grateful I can bring that into my practice. I listen to my patient's needs and help them understand their injury or musculoskeletal disease. I believe it is important to match my patient's expectations with my ability to help, along with what they can do for themselves. I work with my patients to set their own goals for fitness and health.

Don Asmussen, MD

Musculoskeletal Primary Care
Bloomington

I enjoy the diagnostic challenges associated with spine medicine.

David Beard, MD

Orthopedic Surgery
Maple Grove

I am a board certified orthopaedic surgeon with sub-specialty certification in all aspects of hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and upper extremity patient care and surgery. The vast majority of my practice involves taking care of individuals with hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and upper extremity problems. I work with all types of patients: young/old, and active/inactive to name a few. I will work with you to feel better and improve your function. We will focus on non-operative options, and proceed with surgery if we decide that it is an option. In addition, I also care for individuals with orthopedic problems while on call. I enjoy all aspects of orthopedic surgery and working with patients to improve their health.

Heather Bergeson, MD, CAQ

Sports Medicine & Pediatrics
Bloomington

As a sports medicine physician, I enjoy caring for musculoskeletal issues in patients of all ages. As an experienced pediatrician in our community, I have a special interest in the young athlete and strive to promote health and physical fitness at an early age. I believe in health at every size and my goal is to keep my patients active and healthy throughout their lives. Clinical interests include osteochondritis dissecans, spondylolysis, growth plate fractures, overuse injuries, and female athletes.

Deb Bohn, MD

Orthopedic Surgery/Hand Fellowship
Bloomington

I enjoy taking care of hand and arm problems in patients of all ages. It is very rewarding to help people return to their important activities, whether it be buttoning a shirt or swinging a golf club. I have a special interest in fractures and children's upper extremity problems.

Joel Boyd, MD

Orthopedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship
Bloomington

I’ve been an orthopedic surgeon in the Twin Cities for over 25 years. My sub-specialty is in sports medicine, but I also enjoy treating total joint arthroplasty, ACL injuries and ligament injuries. I take care of the knee from beginning to end. My love of sports started when I played football in college at Bucknell University. Throughout my career I’m grateful that I've been able to provide sports medicine care for athletes of all levels, most recently as the Team Physician the Minnesota Wild and University of Minnesota football team. Working with athletes gives me a unique perspective on sports injuries and allows me to translate that into care of my patients on a daily basis.

Jonathan Braman, MD

Orthopedic Surgery/Shoulder Fellowship
Bloomington

Every day, I have the chance to meet patients who are in pain and have problems with their shoulders. By focusing on only one joint, I can help patients understand their surgical and nonsurgical choices. Whether a patient has a broken shoulder, a dislocating shoulder, an arthritic shoulder or a torn rotator cuff, I enjoy the opportunity to work with them and determine what treatment best fits their needs.

Samuel Bugbee, MD, CAQ

Family Medicine/Musculoskeletal Primary Care/Sports Medicine Fellowship
Bloomington

Sports have always played an integral part in my life. As an injured athlete myself, I've seen how critical the sports medicine team is to athletes. When patients come to see me, I know that their lives are impacted and I strive to make each visit a valuable one.

Edward V Craig, MD, MPH

Orthopedic Surgery/Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship
Bloomington

Problems of the shoulder and the solutions have been the focus of my practice for 30 years. My approach is based on the belief that I am here to improve each patient’s quality of life and to treat each person as I would like a member of my family to be treated. It's been my belief that patients can make the best decisions about their health care only if they clearly understand their problem and the solutions. My role is threefold: a) to discuss with patients exactly what I know of their condition b) to put this in terms that make sense c) to present treatment options, whether non operative or operative, so that I can maximize each person’s ability to participate in a treatment plan.
