After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Sussman graduated from the Medical College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He completed his obstetrics and gynecology residency at the Medical College of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Sussman has dedicated his entire 35 year career to women’s health issues through his clinical practice, community involvement, and contribution to research on pharmaceutical therapies.

Over his many years in practice, Dr. Sussman has come to know hundreds of women who he has cared for through these transitions.

Dr. Small is certified both as a DaVinci robot gynecologic surgeon, and as a proctor for teaching other gynecologists this technology. He has delivered thousands of babies to women with normal and high-risk pregnancies.
Dr. Small's commitment to minimally invasive surgery grew out of his wish that his patients should have the best possible outcomes.
