    Hi all...

    I am a diver based in from UK, based in Bali. I come home once a year.

    I have had chronic problems with equalizing my upper left frontal sinus for years now.
    I am researching to find out if anyone knows of the best ENT Dr (Ear/Nose/Throat) specialist.
    I am looking into some form of surgery, perhaps "balloon sinuplasty".

    Please keep in mind that I have tried everything else and this is my last resort.
    I simply want to know about anyone who has had sinus surgery and where/who did it for them?
    Are there any specialist Doctors in the UK who understand diving sinus issues?

    Sorry, can't help directly with your sinus issues, but you could try calling DDRC and seeing if they can help.
