You have heard of March Madness, but have you ever heard of Vasectomy Madness?
Northeast Georgia Urological Associates are holding a drawing to give away two tickets to the NCAA Final Four Championship game.
Any patient who has been seen in consultation for a vasectomy, had a 'no needle, no scalpel' vasectomy or a microscopic vasectomy reversal between Feb. 22, 2013 to April 1, 2013 will be eligible.
Northeast Georgia Urological Associates is known for promotional deals around this time of year.
When they knew the NCAA Final Four Championship game would be in Atlanta they said this promotion was a no-brainer for them.
Dr. John McHugh says there's no better time to be stuck on the couch than during the NCAA Tournament.
"Here you have something the wife wants and something that husband wants, but he might otherwise catch a lot of grief for being off for three days watching," said Dr. McHugh. "It is indeed a match made in heaven."
Surgery scheduler Kathy Burton said promotions like this can lead to a 50% increase in business.
"I would say we get 10 calls a week, but when he runs one of these ads it goes up to 20 or 30 a week," said Burton.
Doctors said they have had a great turnout so far.
