Competence and experience
Our history and journey
- 1984 - Titamed was founded by Dr. Joel Defrancq, a maxillofacial surgeon. The fundamental idea was to design a proprietary CMF fixation system with a strong emphasis on orthognathic surgery. For many years the Titamed systems have been and still is the standard for many maxillofacial surgeons.
- 2004 - Dr. Joel Defrancq designed the Smile Distractor with the single aim to make a patient friendly device that would provide comfort and easy hygienic maintenance. Comfort and hygiene are essential because the palatal distractor remains implanted in the mouth for 3 to 6 months. Titamed's first distractor was marketed in 2005.
- 2015 - The company's orthognathic products were updated and improved to meet modern standards, and trauma fixation was added to the product list. The Smart Fixation system was born. With its enlarged and updated portfolio of CMF products, Titamed began to branch out into international markets.
- 2021 - Titamed is actively expanding across global markets.
Titamed is a strong, innovative and growing company, which is currently expanding across the worldwide market, and is looking for valuable partners, researchers and opinion leaders with a positive mindset, that are driven and ambitious, to join Titamed’s enthusiastic team.
