Dr. Bruce's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bruce "Dr. Bruce is a board certified dermatologist who came to Montana in March of 2013. Prior to arriving in Bozeman, Dr. Aaron Bruce worked as a skin cancer specialist in a large dermatology practice in Northern Colorado. In 2010 he completed a one year Mohs Fellowship Training Program accredited by the American College of Mohs Surgery specifically focused on the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. Under the direction of Ronald Siegle, MD, Brian Biernat, MD, and Peter Seline, MD, Dr. Bruce performed over 1,000 cases of Mohs micrographic surgery and advanced reconstructions. Dr. Bruce is only one of five dermatologic surgeons to have completed this type of fellowship in the entire state of Montana, and the only Mohs surgeon in Southwestern Montana. In addition to publishing several articles in a variety of medical journals, Dr. Bruce has lectured locally and at national meetings. A magna cum laude graduate of Arizona State University, Dr. Bruce was an Arizona State Regent Merit Scholar, and a recipient of a National Science Foundation research grant focusing on evolutionary biology. Dr. Bruce is married with three young children and enjoys spending time with his family particularly in the mountains. Whether cycling, hiking, or skiing, Dr. Bruce is a passionate outdoorsman. He is ecstatic to fulfill his life-long dream of living in the Rocky Mountains. "
