Alzheimer's Disease

UT Southwestern delivers compassionate care to patients with cognitive neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and memory disorders, with education and support for their families and caregivers.

Our physicians deliver the best in compassionate patient care, offering extensive experience in working with memory disorder patients. We specialize in treating Alzheimer's disease, mild cognitive impairment, fronto-temporal dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, and other less common syndromes.

Patients at UT Southwestern’s Memory Clinic receive thorough diagnostic evaluations to identify and classify any existing memory problems or disorders. The most advanced diagnostics – including neuropsychological testing, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or positron emission tomography (PET) scans – provide a roadmap for treatment.

We also offer individuals the opportunity to participate in clinical trials at UT Southwestern’s Alzheimer’s Disease Center (ADC). The ADC is one of only 29 institutions nationwide funded by the National Institute on Aging to evaluate patients and conduct scientific research on the causes of Alzheimer's disease. 

The ADC holds a monthly caregiver support group, as well as numerous outreach activities such as community seminars and conferences relating to brain health, Alzheimer’s disease, and research.
