Starting his career in rural medicine, Dr Kemp of The Leg Vein Doctor loved the variety of his first role. From obstetrics and anaesthetics, he fell in love with the diversity on offer. One day, he needed treatment on his own varicose veins and instantly became fascinated with phlebology. From there, he decided to specialise in the area and treat patients in a minimally invasive way.
Originally opening The Leg Vein Doctor in Toowong in 2012, Dr Kemp and his team then moved down the road to their purpose- built clinic in Auchenflower in 2014. When it comes to The Leg Vein Doctor’s patients, they range from 18 to 81. “One of the fascinating things about venous disease is that it does not discriminate,” he says. Not only that, men and women are equally affected by varicose veins, but Dr Kemp says that women tend to be more proactive in seeking treatment. Outside of the clinic, he also runs a monthly clinic in Toowoomba. “I really enjoy being able to treat country patients and hear their stories. It is a good tonic to the hustle and bustle of city life,” he says.
At the end of a treatment journey, Dr Kemp says it’s a real privilege to be able to sit down and look at their before and after photographs together. “Particularly with those who have suffered for many years with pain because they thought that nothing could be done. Sometimes, my patients will tell me they finally wore shorts to the beach after years of covering up. You cannot beat that feeling!” he says.
