Baltimore Doctor Dies as a Result of Florida Crash Injuries

Dr. Larry Becker

Dr. Larry Becker

Dr. Larry Becker passed away on Jan. 8 after sustaining serious injuries from a car crash on Jan. 3 in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. He was in the car with his wife, Alma, who is now back in Baltimore being cared for by family.

Becker, 77, was treated at St. Mary’s Medical Center but passed away due to complications.

Becker was an orthopedic surgeon who pioneered arthroscopic surgery and was the first surgeon in Maryland to perform the procedure.

“My background in competitive sports enables me to identify with the athlete’s desire to return to his or her sport as quickly as possible,” Becker wrote on his website. “It’s truly a thrill watching my patients  recover from knee surgery and resume their active lifestyles, whatever their age!”

The details of the crash are still being investigated, and the Palm Beach Gardens police  department was not immediately available for comment.

The funeral took place at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation on Jan. 11, and interment was at Baltimore Hebrew Cemetery, Berrymans Lane.
