He has extensive experience in the treatment of all foot & ankle disorders, including trauma and sports injuries.

Professor Redfern has sat on councils of both the British Foot & Ankle Society and the European Foot & Ankle Society where he also chaired the Scientific Committee 2011-2016.

In 2019 he was awarded the European Medicine Award for Orthopaedic Surgery for his innovative techniques and contribution to his field and has also been awarded lifetime honorary membership of the German National Foot & Ankle Society (DAF) in recognition of his achievements.

He has published internationally on foot and ankle surgery and sits on the international reviewer panel for several major journals. He continues to share his experience lecturing and teaching worldwide.

Professor Redfern has carried out many thousands of minimally invasive surgeries and remains committed to his clinical practice looking after patients here in the UK, based in London and Sussex.
