TRIA

TRIA is proud to partner with the Minnesota Magicians. As part of this partnership, TRIA provides Athletic Trainers and Doctors to all of the Magicians games at Richfield Ice Arena.

Sports medicine doctors from the TRIA Orthopedic Center have served as team physicians to Minnesota professional sports teams and athletic programs, including the Minnesota Magicians, for over 25 years. This experience translates into improved management of sports-related injuries for athletes of all ages and skill levels. Players have access to these reputable sports-medicine physicians who are also committed to patient care and investing in education and research. Future sports medicine professionals are trained through TRIA’s accredited sports medicine fellowship program in affiliation with the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Minnesota.

TRIA was built on the strengths of each of its partners for the benefit of our patients and the community while advancing the science of orthopedic medicine. March 15, 2005, TRIA opened at 494 & France Avenue in Bloomington, Minnesota, offering comprehensive orthopedic care – from diagnosis to treatment to surgery – at one convenient location.
