Care for Disease, Injury and Disability of the Nervous System


Christopher Becker, DO
Director of Neurology, Jefferson Bucks, Frankford, and Torresdale Hospitals

We provide care in the area of the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves and muscles.

Some medical problems that our neurologists deal with are: strokes, headache, seizures (such as epilepsy), tremor, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and neuropathy. Neurologists concentrate solely on neurologic related problems and thus play a key role in the patient's care throughout their inpatient hospital stay and follow-up outpatient care.
