Balloon Sinuplasty


Chronic sinusitis can lead to a frustrating cycle of doctor visits, antibiotic therapy, and temporary relief until the cycle occurs all over again. If you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis and are not responding well to antibiotics, you may be a candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty. This revolutionary treatment for blocked sinuses offers a minimally-invasive option for patients who do not need, or may not want, extensive sinus surgery.


ADVENT Founder and President, Dr. Madan Kandula, was the first surgeon in Wisconsin to perform balloon sinuplasty and has treated more patients with this technology than anyone else in the state. Years after having traditional sinus surgery himself, Dr. Kandula decided to undergo in-office balloon sinuplasty and turbinate reduction after he began to experience stuffiness while laying down at night. Watch as he narrates his own procedure and shares what you can expect during and after the procedure.

Balloon Sinuplasty at ADVENT

Balloon Sinuplasty is an endoscopic, catheter-based procedure for patients suffering from sinusitis. The vast experience of our Physicians enables them to treat even severe cases with balloon sinuplasty, and expand the range of patients that can now benefit from this low-key procedure. In order to properly determine if you are a good candidate for Balloon Sinuplasty, you will start at step one of ADVENT's Patient Journey.

Step 1


During your first visit, we’ll evaluate The Breathing Triangle®. This examination of your nose and throat with a tiny, lighted camera is critical to establishing a proper care plan.

Step 2

in-office CT scan ADVENT

An in-office CT scan will help us get a greater view of your anatomy. During that same visit, a board-certified physician will immediately review the results with you and discuss a personalized approach to alleviating any nasal obstructions that may be the root of your sinus concerns.

Step 3

Balloon Sinuplasty and Turbinate Reduction ADVENT

On the day of your Balloon Sinuplasty, your nasal passages will be numbed with a local anesthetic and a small, flexible balloon catheter will be used to enlarge the affected sinus passageway to restore normal sinus drainage.


Recovery from a Balloon Sinuplasty is quick, and patients can return to their usual activities the next day. You’ll return for a 1-week, 3-week, 6-week and 12-week follow-up visit to ensure your recovery is on track.


“Night and day, again suffering probably 30 years ago with just the sinus infections and the constant stuffy nose, thinking it was just going to be a hereditary issue that I had to live with, to fast forwarding to now, where realizing it was something that could be easily corrected and the change was noticeable right away.”
