An enterprising Massachusetts doctor is marking America’s ‘March madness’ basketball season by offering a free pizza with every vasectomy.
Evan Cohen, manager of Urology Associates of Cape Cod, says his patients will be able to watch games as they recover from the 20-minute operation while enjoying their favourite margarita, pepperoni or Hawaiian pizza.
According to Mr Cohen, March is the most popular month for vasectomy procedures, with men preferring to recuperate in the early spring rather than during the summer months.
Millions of men – and many women – take sick days from work during March Madness to watch the NCAA’s college basketball tournament, which features a series of 68 knock out-games on television all through the day and evening for much of March.
Vasectomies usually take between two days and a week to recover from, meaning men who have the procedure will be able to take advantage of the time of year to stay at home and watch basketball on television.
Mr Cohen told ABC: “We see about 100 consults in March, when we typically may only have 20 to 30 [in other months]. We wanted men to relax, and give them an excuse to watch the game.”
I can dig it. And a terrific excuse for time off from work.
