I am aware that most of my patients have rare disorders, for which the diagnosis is not made or have been delayed for many years. I hope that the information available on this website and on my blog will contribute to an increase awareness, and therefore an early diagnosis and treatment for these conditions. But of course reading information on internet will never replace the benefit of a consultation, where questions are answered in details, following a long interview and a clinical examination.
My interest in movement disorders started in 1981 when I first came to London to study under the late Prof David Marsden. Since that time, I have been working in the field of Parkinson’s disease, being involved in developing continuous infusion techniques and focal dystonia, being the pioneer in France in 1986 for using Botulinum toxin in the treatment of focal dystonia. My experience over the years in these fields has taught me that despite the complexity and the therapeutic challenges, there is always place for hope and that a small improvement can have a big impact on the quality of life of the patient.
