BIOGRAPHY
Dr Marie-Helene Marion is a consultant neurologist, specialised in Parkinson’s disease and in the use of Botulinum toxin (also called Botox) in Neurology.

Marie-Helene studied medicine at the University of Clermont-Ferrand in the heart of the beautiful volcanic region of Auvergne in France. She went to Paris to study Neurology as an “Interne des Hopitaux de Paris” in the most prestigious departments of that time and in parallel studied Neuro-pharmacology (how the drugs work in the brain). She went to London to specialize in movement disorder as a research fellow under Professor David Marsden for 2 years. His passion for Parkinson’s disease, Dystonia and the all field of involuntary movement was contagious and never left Marie-Helene since.

Dr Marion went back to Paris in September 1986 to work as a Chef de Clinique and pioneer in France the use of Botulinum toxin in Neurology. In 1998 she crossed again the channel to follow her Australian husband and worked for 12 years at St George’s hospital, in London, running Movement disorders clinics and various Botulinum toxin clinics. At St George’s she still runs a clinic specialized in excessive sweating, in particular facial sweating and hands sweating, and a clinic for voice disorders and severe bent neck.

Now her main clinical activity is at Wilbraham Place Practice in Sloane Square and at Parkside hospital in Wimbledon. Marie-Helene has founded the London BTX centre, which is dedicated to the Botox treatment of focal dystonia, (Blepharospasm, Cervical dystonia, Jaw dystonia, Writer’s cramp, Musician’s cramp), Hemifacial spasm, Facial palsy, Tremor, Bruxism and excessive sweating. A special mention for patients with voice disorders who are seen in a joint clinic, unique in London, with an ENT-voice specialist (Ms Lucy Hicklin) and a neurologist (MH Marion). Movements disorders clinics are also set up for parkinsonian patients and related disorders, with the possibility of offering full assesment of the condition and therapeutic advices customised to the age of the patient, the stage of the disease and the type of complications.
