Frontotemporal dementia care at Mayo Clinic
Your Mayo Clinic care team
At Mayo Clinic, an integrated team of doctors trained in nervous system conditions (neurologists), nervous system and mental health conditions (neuropsychologists), nervous system conditions and radiology (neuroradiologists), speech and language (speech-language pathologists), sleep medicine, and physical medicine and rehabilitation collaborate to evaluate and treat frontotemporal dementia.
Mayo Clinic doctors evaluate and treat more than 150 people with frontotemporal dementia each year.
Mayo Clinic researchers study risk and genetic factors, diagnostic techniques, and treatment options for frontotemporal dementia and other types of dementia. Mayo Clinic researchers are currently coordinating a large National Institutes of Health-funded study called ALLFTD that follows individuals with sporadic and familial frontotemporal dementia and associated disorders. You may be eligible to participate in clinical trials and studies in the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center.
