Yehonatan Medical: Our story

Yehonatan Medical’s story began with the humble idea of improving medical and surgical equipment and has led to great achievements.
It all began when Dr. Michael Cohen founded Mofet Etzion in order to create and provide innovative defense solutions in the field of ballistics. His undisputed work made an impact on world industry leaders and local defense companies, as well as the IDF (Israel Defense Force). As part of Mofet Etzion’s cooperation with the IDF, Dr. Cohen took the 35th Paratrooper Battalion under his wing and became their mentor.
One of the activities Dr. Cohen and the commanders took part in included a visit to the Sheba Medical Center, where they attended lectures given by the hospital’s leading doctors. During one of these lectures, Dr. Cohen learned that the wires used for stitching wounds and organs, tear easily causing a myriad of problems. Hearing that the stainless-steel wires that closed the sternum tore was incomprehensible to Dr. Cohen and his mind raced to find a solution. A short time later he was invited to participate in an open-heart operation and he realized the openness of the medical profession to game changing innovations.
Dr. Cohen knew then what his next project was going to be. Together with his team at Mofet Etzion, they began creating innovative and revolutionary solutions in the medical field such as IVF, heart surgery, post-surgery infection prevention, and other surgeries, treatments and procedures. Together, they founded Yehonatan Medical. Since then, the rumor of new medical innovations and creativity has spread across the country, and today, all of Israel’s hospitals turn to Yehonatan Medical for collaboration and for cutting edge medical solutions that have never been seen before. Dr. Cohen holds the office of Head of Innovation and Technology at Yitzhak Shamir Medical Center (formerly known as Assaf Harofeh Medical Center), leading it to new heights.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to the Sheba Medical Cardiac Center that welcomed us to the world of medicine and encouraged us to advance with our innovations. 
Today, Yehonatan Medical’s team continues to work on new and exciting projects that have changed and will change the medical industry forever and drive it further into the future. Yehonatan Medical’s single most important objective remains – to save as many lives as possible.
