Dr Escalas practices within the Institut Ophtalmologique Sourdille-Atlantique wich is the result of the grouping of 2 large groups of ophthalmologists from Nantes: The "Clinique Sourdille", exclusively dedicated to ophthalmology for several generations, which enjoyed a great notoriety with the public as well as with colleagues. And a group created by André Baron which quickly developed by being a precursor in retinal and anterior segment surgery. This team also had a national notoriety thanks to the expertise acquired in cataract surgery the organization of the congress "Phakomania" which will be renewed 6 times.
These 2 groups will gradually expand and achieve a considerable volume of surgical procedures, without equivalent in France.
From 2010, the two clinics are each considering the construction of new buildings more adapted to the evolution of the specialty. By chance, the two groups need to evolve simultaneously in order to increase efficiency and ergonomy of the clinic for the next 20 years, thus offering the opportunity for a merger. This merger took place in 2018 and brought together all those who shared the same values and the same vision of the practice of ophthalmology.
Today we are 24 ophthalmologists whose skills cover all the subspecialties of ophthalmology, both medical and surgical, the Oculoplastic unit includes 5 doctors.
Our ambition is to be a benchmark player in the field of ophthalmology that respects freedom of practice while creating a supportive community that takes into account the collective interest, patients, employees and physicians.
