A Win-Win During March Tournaments

Hospital news | Friday, March 9, 2018

Prairie du Chien, WI – If you have been considering a vasectomy and enjoy basketball, Dr. Jonathan Rippentrop, Urologist at Crossing Rivers Health, advises that March may be the perfect time to schedule your appointment. “A vasectomy is a quick in-office procedure that will have you back in your recliner, same-day, for recovery- just in time to watch the big basketball tournament,” Rippentrop explains. “We recommend resting a day or two after the procedure and you should be completely recovered within a week.”

Rippentrop adds, “The only change a vasectomy should make in a man’s life is that he will no longer be fertile.” Rippentrop advises that men who are considering having a vasectomy should do so carefully. “The operation is safe, easy and effective, but it's also permanent. There's no guaranteed way to reverse the operation.” Important information about vasectomies, including a list of commonly asked questions, can be found at
