March is the peak period for college basketball excitement! But according to the Cleveland Clinic, it’s also a peak period for something else.
They found an 11-percent increase in vasectomies during the March Madness college playoff schedule. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon thinks it just makes sense; if you’re going to be recovering from elective surgery, why not do it when something good is on TV?
ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork notes that vasectomy is “an outpatient procedure in most circumstances, often can be done in less than hour, about an 48-hour recovery time” – just long enough to watch a few days of March Madness!
