Brach Eichler Presents “Burton L. Eichler Award’ to St. Barnabas Medical Center’s Dr. Ernani Sadural - Fourth Annual Eichler Award Honors Legacy of Heathcare Law Pioneer Burton Eichler

December 20, 2013 at 6:55 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ – Brach Eichler L.L.C. presented the “Burton L. Eichler Award” to Ernani Sadural, M.D., F.A.C.O.G, clinical chief of the Department of OB/GYN at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ. As a sponsor of “New Jersey’s Top Docs” for 2013, Brach Eichler recognized Sadural for his efforts to help the underserved around the world at New Jersey Monthly’s Top Doctors reception, which was held for all Top Doctors honorees at The Short Hills Hilton in Short Hills, NJ, on November 25, 2013.

Dr. Sadural received a check in the amount of $1,000 to be donated to a medically related non-for-profit of his choice. Sadural designated LIG Global, a New Jersey-based non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to deliver humanitarian relief to people around the world and to bring together medical and non-medical volunteers, supplies and technology, which he co-founded with his wife, Sarah.

“Burton Eichler’s name is synonymous with the practice of hospital and healthcare law in New Jersey; he was at the cutting edge of changes in New Jersey’s health care law. But he was also a man of enormous integrity. For example, for more than three decades, Eichler was deeply committed to Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey, and he served as a member of the board of directors of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center,” explained John D. Fanburg, health law practice chair and managing member of Brach Eichler. “The Burton L. Eichler Award is our way of honoring his legacy of leadership and in the spirit of the way he gave tirelessly to the community.”

On behalf of his work for LIG Global, Sadural has personally led 13 medical and surgical teams to eight different countries, including one to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake. He recently returned from Grenada and will lead a group of 70 individuals to the Philippines next month to aid in the disaster recovery efforts there following the recent typhoon. His organization, LIG, also participates in local community outreach programs such as with the United Way.

Sadural is also a board member for the Marian Rose World Mission where he conducts community outreach programs in the Philippines. Locally, he volunteers his time at the St. Barnabas Women’s GYN Clinic.

Committed to medical education, he serves on the Departmental Advisory and Resident Education Committees at St. Barnabas and has twice been honored with the Annual Teaching Award given by the graduating OB/GYN resident physicians there. Sadural has been featured in a Discovery Channel documentary entitled, "From conception to birth," as well as "A Baby story" on TLC.

Sadural is a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist. He received his bachelor's degree in biology from Northwestern University and his M.D. from Northwestern University Medical School. He resides in East Hanover, NJ.

Getting a Handle on Thanksgiving

This year, on our National Day of Thanks, I would like to express my gratitude for having hands.

We typically don’t thank our body parts because they seldom leave us.  Most of us have not experienced unfortunate accidents or suffered the horrible consequences of war; tragic events  which might cause us to lose a limb.  

Most of us take our fingers and hands and elbows ...

My Epic Beauty Fails

One day as I was looking around a high-end cosmetics store for a new lipstick, a “beauty expert” approached me and said that I was so stunning I should forget the lipstick, and get a lip plumper instead. At first I wondered why I needed a lip plumper if I was already so stunning. But then I thought, “Now here is someone wearing a badge that says, ‘beauty expert,’ so ...
