Memory Clinic – Treating Dementia & Memory Impairment

At Bumrungrad, we have a Memory Clinic to specifically work with Dementia (of which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common). The Memory Clinic treats memory based conditions which cause dementia, such as:
  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Brain Tumors
  • Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD)
  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB)
  • Fronto-temporal Dementia
  • Korsakoff's Syndrome
  • Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
  • Subdural Hematoma
  • Vascular Dementia
  • Dementia from movement disorders:
  • Thyroid Disorders
  • Vitamin Deficiency

The Memory Clinic doctors will do screening tests to determine if the cause of the dementia is “treatable” or “non-treatable”.
  • “Treatable dementia”: Refers to dementia which is caused by something such as thyroid disorders, B12 deficiency, tumors, or subdural hematoma (bleeding of the brain). The doctor may then refer you to a neurosurgeon or an endocrinologist based on the cause.
  • “Non-treatable dementia”: Refers to dementia which cannot be cured by surgery or medicine. However, non-treatable dementia can be assisted through the use of medicine to slow the progression of dementia. Alzheimer's disease accounts for about 65% of non-treatable dementia.

Dementia & Alzheimer's Screening

  • History & physical evaluation
  • Cognitive evaluation
  • Blood tests, as well as heart, chest and spine evaluations for treatable conditions
