A podiatric surgeon with over ten years of surgical practice specialising in reconstructive and elective surgery of the foot, Angelo continues to advance his surgical repertoire by providing patients the option of minimal incision surgery (MIS) in isolation or in combination with traditional approaches.
Angelo also has vast experience with occupational related musculoskeletal injuries of the foot and ankle including novel assessment of gait related disturbances utilising F-scan plantar pressure analysis.
Angelo is vice president of The Australasian College of Podiatric Surgeons and the Chief Executive Officer and foot surgeon at Adelaide Ambulatory Day Surgery. Located at the East Adelaide Medical Center, AADS is an accredited facility that offers patients the convenience and the affordability of having foot surgery and procedures performed with the highest level of safety within a day surgery setting.
Angelo is a visiting lecturer at the University of SA in podiatric surgery clinical studies 400 and provides observational placements for undergraduate podiatry students. He is a reviewer for The Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery and was awarded a Fellowship with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

Podiatrist at Elizabeth Vale and Murray Bridge
Ursula Richards is an enthusiastic podiatrist who comes from an extensive basketball background. Ursula’s sporting involvement has helped shape a strong interest in the area of sports podiatry and form a greater understanding of how athletes function and of musculoskeletal injuries.
Ursula has a particular interest in dry needling, mobilization techniques along with managing biomechanical issues through gait analysis with the use of the F-scan in-shoe pressure mapping system.
Fortunate to have had the opportunity to work closely with Podiatric Surgeon, Angelo Salerno, assisting day surgery at the Hutt St surgical practice, Ursula has developed invaluable tools to implement pre and post surgical rehabilitation.
Podiatrist at Murray Bridge
Areas of Interest: Sports, Orthotics, Nail Surgery, paediatrics and injury rehabilitation. Dale joined Footmed after concluding practice in rural South Australia in early 2017.
He successfully completed his Podiatry studies at the University of South Australia, where he also studied Human Movement. Dale holds qualifications as a Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer. By combining the skills and knowledge gained from his experience in both disciplines, Dale approaches concerns from a whole body perspective, rather than simply looking at the feet in isolation. By assessing the body as a whole, and how the feet function together with the rest of the body, Dale is well equipped to assist with a broad range of foot and leg concerns.
Dale enjoys many facets of podiatry including nail surgery, paediatrics, orthotics and sports injury rehab. Coming from a sporting background, he has a special interest in musculoskeletal therapy, particularly in relation to using exercise instead of medication as a treatment option.
Tamara graduated from the University of South Australia in 2018 with a Bachelor of Podiatry Degree. During her studies, she participated in multiple rural clinics including Whyalla, Point pearce, Broken hill and an overseas placement to a small island/country that was only 34km in length, called Kiribati.
When Tamara was younger she was always interested in sports and playing basketball competitively since she was 8 years old helped her develop a key interest in sports and injury management. As a podiatrist Tamara is also interested in paediatrics, nail surgery and orthotic therapy but enjoys all aspects of podiatry.
“I have always had an interest in helping people and working in health care from a young age. Keeping people physically active and healthy is a strong interest of mine. I like to stay up to date in the latest evidence and take a holistic approach to help patients achieve their goals”
When Tamara is not at work, she likes to travel as often as she can. She enjoys learning and experiencing different cultures all over the world. Tamara also enjoys being outdoors, hiking and enjoys going wine tasting in the multiple regions we have across South Australia.
Our administration and front desk staff are here to make your visit to Footmed comfortable and efficient. Whether that be promptly answering the phone, to helping you with paperwork, we aim to make your visit enjoyable. If you have any concerns or queries, don’t hesitate to contact one of our staff.
