Kirk Aadalen, MD

Orthopaedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship

Gordon Aamoth, MD

Non-Operative Orthopaedics

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

Since I decided to become a physician, sports medicine is always what I have wanted to do. I try to take something from each of my experiences as a patient, athlete and a life long learner in medical field. I strive to get people back to their activities as quickly as possible. When not in the clinic or on the sideline, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children.

Elizabeth Arendt, MD

Orthopaedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship

For leisure activities, I enjoy cycling, squash, cross-country skiing and golf. I also enjoy reading fiction, as well as orthopaedics! I am married with two nearly grown children.

Don Asmussen, MD

Musculoskeletal Primary Care

I enjoy the diagnostic challenges associated with spine medicine. I am active with my family with boating, skiing and garden work.

Heather Bergeson, MD, CAQ

Sports Medicine & Pediatrics

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. My favorite activities are Nordic and alpine skiing, yoga, running, and cycling - especially when my husband and two kids are with me.

Deb Bohn, MD

Orthopaedic Surgery/Hand Fellowship

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. When I'm not taking care of patients, I enjoy cooking, gardening and raising my beautiful children.

Joel Boyd, MD

Orthopaedic Surgery/Sports Medicine Fellowship

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

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

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. When I'm home I love to run, play basketball, chase after my two beautiful children, and cheer on my favorite Minnesota sports teams with my family.

Edward V Craig, MD, MPH

Orthopaedic Surgery

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.

Stephen England, MD, MPH

Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon

As a pediatric orthopaedist, I enjoy working with families to manage and treat all aspects of orthopaedics in young children and adolescents. Children are not simply small adults and their unique injuries and conditions require great attention and ongoing care.
