Dr Nicholas Kemp is a Brisbane born and educated local that attended medical school at the University of Queensland. After graduation in 1981 he worked in the Queensland Public Hospital system before travelling to Africa and working in a rural hospital in Zululand. Following that he undertook work in Lewisham Hospital, SE London but eventually due to adverse climatic circumstances he felt the need to return to the Sunshine State!
Nick then set up a family general practice in Mount Isa where he not only ran a busy clinic but also provided anaesthetic, surgical and obstetric services for the public hospital for 15 years. During this time Nick developed a recurrence of varicose veins in his leg after having had them surgically stripped a few years previously. It was while looking at treatment options for himself that he became aware of the new advances in the field of sclerotherapy. He became so intrigued by these modern methods of treatment that he decided to pursue training and relocate to the Gold Coast.
Nick commenced training with the Australian College of Phlebology and honed his skills while working consecutively in two busy sclerotherapy practices. Graduating top of the class, he was awarded the President’s Gold Medal for Sclerotherapy. Feeling there was a gap in Ultrasound training and knowing one day that he would open up his own practice, Nick enrolled in the University of Sydney’s Post Graduate Medical Sonography programme to obtain the necessary certification in this field.
e then went on to complete the Diploma in Procedural Phlebology and is part of the ongoing training programme to become a Fellow of the Australasian College of Phlebology (ACP).
