Lou Ruvo Center’s world-class services are for locals, too


When the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health opened to patients in July 2009, one of its primary objectives was to provide a place for Las Vegas residents suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases to obtain treatment locally… Venetian cage cashier Dean Bengert, 51, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s four years ago. He said he visited three different doctors and traveled to the Mayo Clinic in Arizona before getting a correct diagnosis. He is now participating in a clinical trial at the Cleveland Clinic, exploring exercise therapy for Parkinson’s disease.
