Best place for sinus surgery in the US?
 
What are some of the best places for sinus surgery in the US?

In other words, who are [I]the[/I] sinus specialists here?

I ask because:
- my local city doctor doesnt stuff sinuses with the latest "packing", which prevents pain. This is an important clue as to how modern his surgery methods are.
- a doctor from a larger city near me does do the modern packing but only did a CT. I've seen some places mention more tests.

So I know these guys are not the best. I'm willing to travel anywhere.

Not sure about specialists. I got my surgery with a local doctor. CT was the only test he required (although most will require a pregnancy test for females as well, but sometimes that's done the day of the surgery). A CT scan is the best way for them to examine the sinuses.
