    Mr David Redfern is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals. He studied in London and trained in London and Cambridge. He then undertook subspecialist fellowships at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, USA), and in Bristol at the Avon Orthopaedic Centre. 

    Mr Redfern has extensive experience in the management of foot and ankle disorders, trauma and sports injuries, including arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery. He has performed thousands of foot and ankle operations and is an internationally recognised expert who has developed minimally invasive and less invasive techniques in these areas. He is particularly renowned for his contributions to bunion surgery and the treatment of complex forefoot and hindfoot problems. Together with a French colleague, he invented the MICA technique (Minimally Invasive Chevron Akin) for correcting bunions using keyhole surgery which has been adopted by surgeons worldwide. 

    Mr David Redfern is actively involved in education and training and has trained more than 150 surgeons worldwide. He is also chair of the Minimally Invasive Surgery Committee of the European Foot and Ankle Society.
