Believing in better, simpler treatments

There are common themes across every medical specialty we support: patients want to get better and physicians want simpler, more effective options. That is why we work hard to improve our minimally invasive medical devices and the way they are delivered to hospitals and physicians around the world.

We are family owned, but we are not small. More than 10,000 people around the world call themselves Cook employees, and we work with many distributors who we consider an extension of Cook. Our sales representatives can be found in most countries through Europe.


We have been manufacturing products in Europe since 1969, and our products are available across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Being a family-owned business, we do what is best for the patient. We have the freedom to work through a problem for as long as it takes to find the simplest solution.
