March Madness Causes Vasectomy Boom

If you’re seeking a medical pretext to ditch work during March Madness, look no further than your local urologist’s office, where doctors are likely to be dishing out vasectomies like assists this time of year. During last year’s Big Dance, there was a 10 percent spike in the anti-reproductive surgery—men figuring that if they were going to nurse themselves anyhow, they might as well have basketball on. The Oregon Urology Institute is offering “24 prime slots to get the surgery during the first couple days of the tournament.” Or, get on board with The Urology Team of Austin’s “Vas Madness” promotion, which promises to broadcast games in a lobby “less crowded than a sports bar.”
