Dementia and Cognitive Disorders

If you or a loved one suffers from Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or other cognitive disorders, we can help.

The Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology Division at UPMC has expertise in caring for people with these disorders.

We provide thorough assessments and diagnoses, as well as support for caregivers.

Mental Decline Disorders We Treat

  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Frontotemporal disorders
  • Lewy Body dementia
  • Mixed dementia
  • Vascular dementia

The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's is a regressive brain disease caused by complex brain changes. Over time, dementia symptoms get worse.

Our team works closely with the University of Pittsburgh Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. As one of the nation's leading research centers in this field, we're always looking for ways to better diagnose and treat Alzheimer's.
