UT Southwestern delivers compassionate care to patients with memory disorders and their families.

Our renowned 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, DNA and plasma evaluations, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or positron emission tomography (PET) scans – provide a roadmap for treatment. Our clinicians use cutting-edge treatments that build on the research conducted at UTSW.

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 32 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.
