Kirk Aadalen, MD

Orthopaedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship
Bloomington

Gordon Aamoth, MD

Non-Operative Orthopaedics
Bloomington

I have three passions in life: work, family, and golf. I’m lucky to be an orthopaedic 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 and made the decision to come back to TRIA because I enjoy treating patients and helping them get better.

Mark Alexander, MD

Musculoskeletal Primary Care/Acute Injury
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

Orthopaedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship
Bloomington

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. 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.

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. My philosophy has always been "exercise is medicine" 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

Orthopaedic 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

Orthopaedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship
Bloomington

I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, playing golf, watching movies and listening to music in my free time.

Jonathan Braman, MD

Orthopaedic 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

Musculoskeletal Primary Care/Acute Injury
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

Orthopaedic Surgery
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.

Aimee Custer, PsyD, LP

Neuropsychologist
Bloomington

I believe in the importance of holistic, patient-centered care and learning how to serve patients along their journey. I recently completed a sports neuropsychology fellowship, specializing in the assessment and treatment of sports-related concussion. I’ve worked with athletes across all sports, including youth, collegiate, professional and Olympic populations. Through clinical training and research, I've seen the importance of utilizing an active treatment approach for the management of concussion, including collaboration with an interdisciplinary team to develop specific treatment plans for patients. In addition to the traumatic brain injury management, I’ve also completed training in rehabilitation of spinal cord injury, traumatic orthopedic injury, chronic illness and pain management.
