Madan Kandula, MD

Otolaryngologist in Wauwatosa, WI

"Where we excel is in offering all options to our patients. If there’s something new out there we ask if it’s going to work and keep pushing the envelope forward. Then, we walk our patients down the various treatment pathways so they can choose the best option for them."



The first surgeon to perform Balloon Sinuplasty in Wisconsin, Madan Kandula, MD, leads his specialty as a pioneering and visionary otolaryngologist. Board-certified in his specialty, Dr. Kandula is known as Wisconsin’s thought leader for breathing and snoring/sleep apnea solutions. Patients travel from throughout the state, region and the world to seek his expertise. Dr. Kandula routinely treats patients who have had previously unsuccessful surgeries and is often able to deliver better results with less invasive procedures. Because of his track record of innovation, medical device companies often consult with Dr. Kandula on new product development. Additionally, Dr. Kandula’s exceptional surgical skill-set allows him to be an expert trainer for other surgeons in advanced techniques. Whether innovating new treatments or redefining independent medical practice for the 21st century, Dr. Kandula follows a philosophy of doing better today what was done yesterday.





Dr. Kandula and his wife, Dr. Gwen Kandula, an audiologist, founded ADVENT in 2004 to establish a new benchmark in quality for independent medical practices. With the goal of implementing state-of-the-art care and unbiased, patient focused care, they have grown ADVENT into southeastern Wisconsin’s largest independent ENT practice.

Dr. Kandula is no stranger to sinus issues himself. Read about his personal sinus surgery here and watch his self-narrated in-office balloon sinuplasty and turbinate reduction procedure here.
