Georges Marion

Georges Marion (1 June 1869, in Fixin, Côte-d'Or – 17 October 1960, in Paris) was a French surgeon and urologist.[1]

In 1892 he became an interne of hospitals in Paris, followed by promotions as aide of anatomy (1894) and prosector (1896). In 1897 he obtained his medical doctorate, and became chief of clinical surgery at the Hôtel-Dieu during the following year. In 1900 he was appointed chirurgien des hôpitaux, and shortly afterwards attained an associate professorship at the medical faculty in Paris.[2]

His name is associated with "Marion's disease", described as a congenital obstruction of the posterior urethra.[3] He made contributions involving suprapubic prostatectomy,[4] and is credited for making modifications to Joaquín Albarrán's procedure of nephropexy ("nephropexy ad modum Albarran Marion").[5][6]
