Hospitals report spike in vasectomies during March Madness

March Madness means big business for bars -- and hospitals too.

Every year, hospitals experience a huge spike in the number of men undergoing vasectomies around the time of the NCAA tournament.

The men figure that if they're going to be on the couch for a few days, they might as well watch some basketball.

"This weekend will be full of basketball and video games and me doing absolutely nothing -- no liftning, no anything," said Vern Sanders, who is undergoing a vasectomy. "And it's doctor's orders, so who am I to argue?"

Some doctors are even advertising specials this week. One Texas urology clinic -- who calls itself the "Vas Masters" -- is charging its special "Vas Madness" rate at $595.
