Basketball isn't the only type of March Madness going on this month .. but we'd wager that you wouldn't guess the craze: turns out that March is also vasectomy season!
"We had Vasectomy Madness, so to speak," urology professor Dr. Kelly Chiles told The Washington Post.
"It is very, very busy, and we absolutely make extra room for it," Dr. David Gilley, a urologist at Urology of Indiana told Bob Kravitz of WTHR, "It's a very popular time – now and right at the end of the year when deductibles are met. It's more than double what we normally do."
Good marketing may have something to do with it. Jennifer Hargis of Urology of Indiana added that the practice aired ads promoting vasectomies as an excused vacation: Come on in, have the 45-minute procedure done, swallow an aspirin ... place a bag of frozen peas ..., kick back and tell the wife and kids you're not available for a couple of days.
