GOSHEN, N.Y. (July 5, 2016) — The Glen Arden Continuing Care Retirement Community will host a free “Dinner with the Doctor: All about Joint Replacement” buffet lecture with Dr. Kenneth Rauschenbach on Monday, July 25 at 6 p.m. in Glen Arden’s Rhinebeck Room.

Dr. Rauschenbach, a member of the St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital (SLCH) Orthopedic Department, will discuss the treatment of arthritis in the hip and knee, including total joint replacement.

Dr. Rauschenbach is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with expertise in sports medicine, hip and knee replacement and trauma. A past chairman of the hospital’s Orthopedic Surgery Department, Dr. Rauschenbach is a partner at Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County. He also serves as director of the Orthopedics Institute at SLCH.

Dr. Rauschenbach is an active member of the community, serving as the team physician for local sports teams in the Newburgh and Marlboro school districts, and the New York State Boxing Commission. He has conducted numerous community education presentations on arthritis and joint replacement, particularly the anterior approach to total hip replacement.
