A small percentage of patients with chronic sinusitis will fail to improve even with the best medical treatment.

In most studies of patients treated by allergists who specialize in treatment of chronic sinusitis, this is less than 10% of patients who have had optimal medical treatment.

It is important to realize, however, that surgery is frequently performed on patients who have not had the best medical treatment prior to surgery.

This web site is one of many attempts to educate physicians and the public about the treatment of chronic sinus infections.

Although many physicians, including ear, nose and throat doctors and allergists treat chronic sinusitis, some physicians do a better job at it than others.

There is an ongoing effort by a small number of specialists to educate both physicians and the general public about the best way to treat sinusitis.
