MD, FRACP, GESA, ASHM
Gastroenterologist, Hepatologist, General Physician and Endoscopist
German-born Dr Hampe is a fully Australian-trained specialist in gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and internal medicine.
After completing his initial medical degree in 2004 at Germany’s oldest tertiary institution, Heidelberg University, he worked at the gastroenterology department of Heidelberg University Hospital, one of Europe’s largest medical centres. He then continued his specialist training at Brisbane’s Prince Charles and Princess Alexandra hospitals, Canberra Hospital, Gosford Hospital and Sydney’s St George Hospital.
Dr Hampe moved to the Fraser Coast for a lifestyle change and established Hervey Bay Specialists at 14/62-64 Main St, Pialba. He also consults at St Stephen’s Medical Centre in Maryborough every Thursday.
High-quality colonoscopy is Dr Hampe’s main interest. He has a high personal adenoma detection rate, which is associated with a decreased risk of subsequent bowel cancer. In addition to colonoscopies, Dr Hampe performs gastroscopies, flexible sigmoidoscopies, haemorrhoidal banding, oesophageal variceal banding, oesophageal dilatation and capsule endoscopies. Procedures take place in Hervey Bay, either at Hervey Bay Surgical Hospital or St Stephen’s Hospital.
Dr Hampe is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) and a member of the Gastroenterological Society of Australia (GESA) and the Australasian Society of HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM). He is senior lecturer at the School of Medicine of the University of Queensland.
