"Breathing is something we take for granted and it’s at the core to everything we do as humans. I am proud to spend my time providing individuals the best possible outcome for their Breathing Triangle problems and significantly impacting lives."
Nice To Meet You
My name is Dr. Pratik Patel, and I am a Sinus and Sleep Surgeon at ADVENT. My passion for medicine started in my childhood. I gravitated toward the sciences, and I felt joy in helping people, which translated perfectly into a career in medicine. During my training, I continually gravitated toward Otolaryngology (ENT) for its breadth and fascinating anatomy, giving surgeons the ability to diagnose and treat a myriad of issues. I am most satisfied when the interventions we propose based on a patient’s unique concerns, anatomy, and diagnostic studies greatly improve their lives.
I chose to practice at ADVENT because we are well-equipped to provide nearly everything our patients need in our clinics. By having a narrow focus within ENT, we can provide high-quality and efficient care that fits patients’ overall needs.
My philosophy is to treat each patient and their family as I would my own. I strive to make you feel heard and comfortable throughout your journey with us. At the same time, I want to wield my specialized skills and knowledge to give you as many options as possible for treatment. Together, we will make empowered decisions about your health. Our entire staff is here to help you, streamline your experience, work with your schedule, and get you feeling better. My goal is to get you back to spending time doing what you love without the frustrations of nasal breathing problems or sleep issues.
When I am not in the clinic, I spend my time with family and friends exploring the Chicago food scene. I enjoy spending time outdoors whether it is on a mountain or relaxing at the beach. My travels have even taken me bungee jumping in Zimbabwe over Victoria Falls!

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.
