Chair of the British Neurotoxin Network

Dr Marion is a French neurologist, who has worked permanently in the UK since 2000. She specialises in movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, tremor and dystonia as well as in botulinum toxin treatment in complex dystonia (Blepharospoasm, cervical dystonia, focal hand dystonia) and tremor. She pioneered the use of botulinum toxin treatment for dystonia in France in 1986.

After running the movement disorders clinics at St George's Hospital NHS Trust in London for 12 years, she now works part time in the ENT department with Ms Hicklin, ENT consultant on botulinum toxin treatment of voice, swallowing and breathing dystonic disorders. This NHS joint ENT-Neuro clinic also specialises in injecting deep neck muscles for antecollis.

She is the chair and founder of the British Neurotoxin Network, which gathers neurologists in the UK, running botulinum toxin clinics.

She also runs a blog for patients with dystonia and is very active in giving lectures and organising workshops for the uses of botulinum toxin in complex focal dystonia internationally.

As a medical advisor for Dystonia UK and the chair of the British Neurotoxin Network she works closely with Dystonia UK on audit, UK service maps for injection, reviewing educational leaflets for patients and giving a voice to Dystonia UK at each BNN annual meeting.
