The first surgeon to perform Balloon Sinuplasty in Wisconsin, Madan Kandula, MD, leads his specialty as a pioneering and visionary otolaryngologist. Dr. Kandula offers the most experience with traditional sinus surgery and Balloon Sinuplasty in the state, and his record has established him as Wisconsin’s preeminent ENT specialist for both in-office and surgical procedures. 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.
Board-certified in his specialty, Dr. Kandula has become known as Wisconsin’s thought leader for ENT. Patients travel from throughout the state, region, and the world to seek Dr. Kandula’s 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. Dr. Kandula’s innovation and exceptional surgical skill-set has lent to his ability to be an expert trainer for other surgeons in advanced techniques.
“Where we excel is in offering all options to our patients,” Dr. Kandula says. “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.”
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. Recently, ADVENT has expanded to include the closely allied specialties of allergy treatment and immunology, and facial plastic surgery.
Given his unique ability to make complicated medical issues readily understandable, Dr. Kandula is in demand as a public presenter and news contributor. In addition to leading seminars to educate his peers and the public on the latest advances in ENT care, Dr. Kandula appears regularly on all of Milwaukee’s network TV affiliates. He has been quoted in local and national publications such as “Milwaukee Journal Sentinel,” “Milwaukee Magazine,” “M Magazine,” “Forbes,” “Real Simple,” “Women’s Health,” “NBC’s Today Show,” and “Self,” among others.
