Why Sinus Doctor?
During our years of experience with Sinus patients, we see most cases that could have been simplified with the right diagnosis and treatment. There is a growing need for Sinus education in India and SinusDoctor has been started to address that need. We encounter a lot of cases where Sinusitis can be treated through medication alone where surgery may not cure the case and vice versa. With recent advances in diagnosis and treatment, Sinusitis can be cured completely with the right approach. Also there is a growing need to educate people to not consider Sinusitis as a chronic inconvenience and approach the right doctor for getting permanent relief.
Dr Chaitanya Rao believes that in order to deliver the best treatment to patients, doctors need to constantly keep themselves up-to-date with the emerging methods and the training at IRCAD was in this direction. He firmly believes that continuing medical education should be part of every ENT specialists’ DNA. Dr Chaitanya supports his belief by training other ENT specialists through Hyderabad ENT Research Foundation.
The course was held at IRCAD Taiwan between 15-16 February, 2019 for select ENT Professionals of various nationalities with the objective of equipping them with advanced techniques in Sinus Dissection. The course also gives insights into the global best practices and learn from the peer group.
With medical advancements, surgeries are becoming safer, efficient and less worrisome to patients. Therefore, by undergoing regular CME programs, doctors can ensure these advancements reach the patients.
