Orthopedic and Spine Industry Leader to Know: Dr. Emanuel Haber of The Foot and Ankle Centre of New Jersey

Written by Rachel Fields | August 16, 2010 | Print  |
Emanuel Haber, MD, has labored for years to provide his patients with the best possible care. For him, this means staying at the forefront of new medical technology — most recently, the Noveon Laser.

The purchase of the laser for The Foot and Ankle Centre of New Jersey in Paramus makes Dr. Haber the first podiatrist in northern New Jersey to use a cool laser to treat fungal infections. Traditionally, podiatrists use a heat-based laser to cut through tissue. The cool laser uses light instead, creating a more comfortable sensation for the patient.

The laser will also ensure the infection does not return. By tackling the nail bed and nail root instead of just the nail itself, Dr. Haber said the laser will completely eliminate the fungal infection and prevent the cost of additional procedures.

As a general practitioner, Dr. Haber performs on a variety of patients. "Being a GP is a fun field," he told North Jersey. "I run the gamut from pediatric podiatry to geriatric podiatry to diabetic podiatry. I try to keep on the cutting edge and look out for new technology for my patients."

Dr. Haber has been in private practice since 1985. He currently serves as director of the Foot and Ankle Centre and is on staff at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, N.J. He is also a principle partner in a group that provides podiatric care to several nursing homes, assisted living facilities and rehabilitation centers.

Dr. Haber is a frequent lecturer and has presented to The American Society of Podiatric Medicine and the VA Medical Center. He has also published articles on tendon ligament prostheses and heel spur syndrome in Clinics in Podiatry and other publications.

Dr. Haber earned his MD from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine and completed a podiatric surgical residency at St. Michael's Hospital in Newark, N.J.
