What was the treatment for sinusitis? Is surgery needed for it and how much treatment costs?

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
ENT Specialist, Delhi
If sinusitis is not managed by medication, or recurs frequently, or ct scan suggests extensive disease, then a surgery would be indicated. There are various surgeries depending upon the nature of the problem and so the cost also varies. In our centre, a simple sinus surgery under ga costs about inr 45, 000/-. Regards
