He is very demanding in all he does. Whether it is swimming, biking, running marathons or executing a facelift.

The happiness of his patients is what makes him tick. Not surprising then that many men and women find their way to the Atlas Kliniek following the advice of friends, colleagues or acquaintances.

Dr. Sonja De Breucker, Anaesthetist

Medicine, VUB, 2001 & Anaesthesia, VUB, 2006
Since 2007 she has combined a job at Antwerp’s St-Vincentius hospital with Atlas Kliniek.

In her professional life she is mainly stimulated by the technical aspect of the job, the broad spectrum of medicine she deals with, the narrow link with surgery and naturally the social contact with the many patients she meets.

Sonja is a mother of three children and a keen sportswoman. She enjoys running (Brussels 20 Km, Antwerp 10 miles, ¼ marathon), cycling and skiing.

Dr. Luc Van Overberge, Anaesthetist

Luc specialised further in Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia (UZA) and Autotransfusion (Colorado, USA). He has been involved in the organisation of the Anaesthesia ward at Atlas Kliniek from the start. He has also worked at St.-Jozef Kliniek in Willebroek in the Anaesthesia and Intensive Care wards. Luc’s professional motivation is that via his knowledge of the pharmacological characteristics of anaesthesia products, he can ensure that patients undergo a painless and stress-free operation. In his free time Luc has already flown over our heads a few times; he is a private pilot.

she becomes HR manager, a position she enjoys during servarl years thanks to its human aspect.
