Citieffe is a Trauma Orthopedics player based in Lausanne (Switzerland) providing vital materials for Trauma Management, particularly for Internal and External fixation, Prosthesis and General Surgical Instruments. Citieffe develops, manufactures and sells innovative and patented products such as intramedullary nails for trochanter fractures or sophisticated reconstruction-focused external fixation devices.

Citieffe has a long history that started in Bologna (Italy), one of the main European Orthopedics hubs, through a combination of local engineering skills and the academic capital from the world-famous Rizzoli Institute. An innovative culture focused on product quality has been installed by the founders since inception.

Development was strongly accelerated in 2011 with the hiring of a new Management team from global Trauma leaders (Synthes, Orthofix) and subsequent internationalization of the business. Since then, the product range has been almost completely renewed, and broadened to cover additional indications.
