Dr. Lindsey Bruce moved to Vero Beach in 2015 after many long winters in the northeast. She finds daily inspiration in the ocean and the beautiful community she serves.
Dr. Bruce is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and serves on several hospital committees at Sebastian River Medical Center including acting Vice President of the Medical Executive Committee and the Credentialing Committee. These committees help her find ways to be an advocate for patients and their healthcare.
The ability to offer the most innovative and minimally invasive surgical options for women has always been a priority for Dr. Bruce. She specializes in minimally invasive gynecological surgery and has been robotically trained with da Vinci surgery since 2008.
Originally from Dallas, Texas she earned her Bachelor of Science degree at Southern Methodist University (“SMU”). Dr. Bruce received a tennis scholarship playing for the Mustangs and served as captain of the tennis team.
After college, Dr. Bruce attended Ross University Medical School and spent the first two years of medical school in Dominica, where she volunteered with Salybia mission project, providing medical care to the last remaining indigenous community of the Caribbean—the Kalianajo community. Dr. Bruce spent her last two years of medical school in New York City, where she rotated through many city hospitals including Kings County Hospital.
Dr. Bruce has always had a strong interest in surgery but it wasn’t until her ob/gyn rotation in the Bronx did she realize that women’s health was a natural fit. During her ob/gyn rotation, she met patients from diverse backgrounds, and despite these apparent differences, she felt a compelling connection of sisterhood. This connection combined with her passion for women’s health started a journey she continues to follow.
Dr. Bruce did her OB/GYN residency training at the Yale New Haven Health system. During residency she received numerous awards including OBGYN Consultant of the Year, Yale Medical Student Teaching Award, and an award for Humanness and Kindness towards nursing and hospital staff. She was also the recipient of the AAGL Minimally Invasive Surgeon of the Year Award.
When not working, Dr. Bruce can be found walking her yorkie on the beach, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, or visiting her family in Dallas. Every native Texan needs a good Tex-Mex fix in big “D!”
Dr. Bruce understands our health, particularly gynecology, can leave us feeling vulnerable and she hopes to ease that anxiety with experienced and professional compassion.
