David R. Tomlinson is the inventor of the improved Gomco, the improved Plastibell [1] and the AccuCirc devices.[2] He developed the AccuCirc after performing more than 200 circumcisions on infants. [3] The AccuCirc was developed in 2008 and released in 2009.

He also just so happens to be the "chief expert on circumcision" at the World Health Organization.[4] He has led a team of researchers from the USA and Nigeria. [5] In 2008 he presented an abstract promoting the AccuCirc device at the International Aids conference in Mexico City. [6] He wrote a manual for the WHO on neonatal male circumcision. [7] He develops, implements and evaluates male circumcision training programs in Africa. [8]

He is a physician who teaches family medicine at Brown University in Providence, R.I. [9]
