Dr. John McLaughlin Featured Speaker at Glen Arden Dinner with the Doctor


Newburgh, NY – Dr. John McLaughlin, Medical Director of the St. Luke’s Cornwall Center for Joint Replacement, will be the featured speaker at Glen Arden Continuing Care Retirement Community’s “Dinner with the Doctor: All About Joint Replacement” event at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 31. The free event, which will be held in the Rhinebeck Room of the facility in Goshen, will also include a buffet dinner.

Dr. McLaughlin will discuss when and why one would consider joint replacement as well as what to expect in the recovery process.

Dr. McLaughlin specializes in the treatment of arthritis of the knee, hip and shoulder (including total joint replacement), sports medicine (including arthroscopy and ligament reconstruction) and fracture management. His practice philosophy is to maximize non-surgical treatment prior to considering surgery. When surgery is necessary, minimally invasive techniques are preferred.  He has worked in the Hudson Valley for more than 15 years and is a partner at Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County.

A graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. McLaughlin completed his orthopedic residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.  He completed a total joint/sports medicine fellowship at the University of Texas Health Science Center 
at San Antonio.

Dr. McLaughlin is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons (ABOS), a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) and a member of the American Association of Knee and Hip Surgeons. He is the author and co-author of several articles in peer-reviewed orthopedic journals, including the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and the Journal of Shoulder Surgery.

Dr. McLaughlin is active in the community, and has served as the team physician for the Cornwall High School Green Dragons. He was also the team physician for the Hudson Valley Fort of the Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL).
