Now accepting new patients:


"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 than 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.

What can I expect on my first visit?

At your first visit, we'll focus on finding the facts with an exam to ensure we understand the root of your issue. We'll talk with you about your goals and design a plan specific to you. ADVENT is the only ENT clinic that provides you with a complete Breathing Triangle Evaluation.

Do I need a referral from my primary care physician?

Most insurance does not require a referral. If yours does, we can let you know.

How can I check to see if my insurance is in-network?

Easy! Check our in-network insurance list:   Wisconsin | Illinois | Indiana | Minnesota

If you're still not sure, call us and we'll help you sort it out: 888.938.3838

How long does recovery take?

Most patients experience very little (if any) downtime. You can resume normal activity on the day of the procedure depending on how you're feeling. You may feel like you have a slight cold the day after your procedure. It is recommended to avoid any excessive or strenuous activity for 48 hours after the procedure.

How is ADVENT different than other clinics?

One of the many reasons patients choose us is because we have a 99.7% referral rate. We also do something no other ENT clinic does: we give our patients a complete Breathing Triangle Evaluation. This evaluation is unique to ADVENT and puts a 100% focus on your airway issues. This allows us to get to the root of your snoring or sinus issue. The Breathing Triangle Evaluation has helped over 31,000 ADVENT patients breathe and sleep better.
