    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 the 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.
