Who Is Madan Kandula, MD?

Dr. Kandula is a surgeon, entrepreneur, and the founder/CEO of ADVENT – a leading healthcare company providing solutions for people that have had life-long breathing and sleeping challenges. With unyielding determination, he’s on a mission to free patients from the frustration, complexity, and blatant dysfunction rooted in traditional healthcare. Over the past 19 years, ADVENT has served tens of thousands of patients out of almost two dozen clinics throughout the Midwest.

What Is The Breathing Triangle®?

Under Dr. Kandula's guidance the ADVENT team created The Breathing Triangle® medical concept to strip away the unnecessary complexity and confusion of nasal breathing health. Simply put, there are only three passages in the human body from which you can breathe: the two sides of your nose and throat (The Breathing Triangle®). When this area is compromised in any way, it can result in a tsunami of downstream issues including hypertension, heart disease, stroke, anxiety, and death.

The truth is millions needlessly suffer because conventional healthcare forces patients through a maze of complexity that ultimately only delivers band-aid treatments. With a laser focus on Breathing Triangle solutions, the ADVENT clinical team has empowered thousands of patients, from across the globe, with healthy nasal breathing.
