Celebrating Cook Medical’s partnerships with female clinicians

Cook Medical has a long history working with pioneers and innovators to develop products that are beneficial to both patients and clinicians. For Women’s History Month and beyond, we celebrate our current and past partnerships with women who made a difference.

 Product name: Rösch-Thurmond Fallopian Tube Catheterization Set

Rösch-Thurmond Fallopian Tube Catheterization Set was the first product developed and approved for fallopian tube recanalization. Dr. Thurmond is a pioneer in the reproductive health space.

Product name: Shepard Intrauterine Insemination Catheter Set

“Dr. Shepard partnered with Engineering to develop the Shepard Intrauterine Insemination Catheter Set that is still used today. I know over the years, she has been a brilliant resource for women’s health and IVF knowledge.”

Lynn Nolte, global product manager, Reproductive Health, MedSurg division

 Product name: Thal-Quick Chest Tube

“The Thal-Quick Chest Tube has been the go-to, minimally invasive pleural drainage catheter for pulmonologists and Critical Care physicians for over 30 years. Available globally, this has been further highlighted by physicians choosing it to help sick COVID patients in the ICU these past 12 months.”

Zoe Sharp, global product manager, Critical Care, MedSurg division

In addition to specific products that were developed by women, components of Cook products were also developed by women. For example, some catheters have what is known as the Roberts modification. This modification was developed by Anne Roberts, MD.

We are thankful for the many women who have given their time, talents and lives to the betterment of patient outcomes around the world.
