Mass. urology practice offers pizza with vasectomy
BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) -- Get a vasectomy, eat some pizza, and watch some basketball.
That's the idea behind a promotion by a Massachusetts urologists group that's offering a free pizza to vasectomy patients.
An administrator with Urology Associates of Cape Cod says it's a lighthearted way to raise awareness about the procedure and drum up business.
Evan Cohen tells the Cape Cod Times that getting a vasectomy during the NCAA basketball tournament is the perfect time because typically a day or two of recovery is needed following the simple operation, so it gives patients an excuse to lie on the couch and watch some hoops.
Dr. Evangelos Geraniotis, a urologist at the practice with offices in Hyannis, Sandwich and Nantucket, calls a vasectomy an "easy and less stressful" form of birth control.
