Thomas E. Wiswell, M.D.[a 1], was a doctor at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He practices as neonatologist (Pediatrician who cares for and treats newborns in particular) among others in Honolulu, HI, and Orlando, Fl, USA. Wiswell is a common Jewish surname (Why is this important?).
Starting in 1983, he began to produce a series of egregiously flawed studies that falsely claimed circumcision reduced the incidence of urinary tract infections. All have long since been thoroughly discredited. Wiswell associates with the Gilgal Society, a circumfetish group.

I have some good friends who are obstetricians outside the military, and they look at a foreskin and almost see a $125 price tag on it. Each one is that much money. Heck, if you do 10 a week, that's over $1,000 a week, and they don't take that much time.
