Dr Putra Vatakal is a Malaysian Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon specialising in Sports Orthopaedic Surgery and Arthroscopy. He lives in and serves Kuala Lumpur and the greater Klang Valley. His professional passions are arthroscopic and open joint reconstruction, joint replacements, minimally invasive orthopaedics and fracture fixation.

Dr Putra believes that (whenever possible) you should dive deep into the things that matter to you… and that includes your health. Understanding Orthopaedics aims to answer questions you may have about the world of Bone and Joint Health, but also to rise up new questions and help you make informed decisions about your health.

He is an avid noisemaker (on the tenor saxophone), enthusiastic about orthopaedic and world history, and enjoys walks in the park in the cool of the day and pumping air into his bicycle tyres every few weeks.

Dr Putra is married to the love of his life, and she recently taught him to play Chinese Chequers.

He can be found at:
