For Patients with Memory Disorders

Welcome to the Memory Disorders Center at the UC Neuroscience Institute. Whether you have come to us seeking a diagnosis, a leading treatment or a path forward, we will provide you or your loved one with advanced, compassionate and competent care.

The Memory Disorders Center employs the latest technologies and therapies to diagnose and treat hundreds of adult patients from across the Greater Cincinnati region each year. Our physicians are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and non-Alzheimer’s dementia, including impairment resulting from cerebrovascular disease and hydrocephalus. And our physicians have expertise in diagnosing and treating rare cognitive diseases, such as primary progressive aphasia, frontotemporal dementia and autoimmune encephalopathy.

A comprehensive neurologic evaluation can establish an accurate diagnosis early in the clinical course, which may allow you or your loved one to preserve cognitive function or delay the onset of major symptoms. Our specialists use a comprehensive evaluation to identify medical conditions that may be contributing to an individual’s symptoms. Sleep apnea, diabetes, vitamin deficiency or chronic infections are some examples of potentially treatable medical conditions that lead to cognitive impairment, and management of cardiovascular or stroke risk factors can help protect against additional cerebrovascular damage. In some patients, treatment of medical conditions may result in substantial improvement in their cognitive and behavioral symptoms.
