      It is difficult to find top docs, hopefully this will help.

        This link is the U S News Top Hospitals. Put in the info and see what hospital is up there in orthopedics. When you find the top hospitals you can get the bio's on the doctors.
        Even if a top doc seems out of reach, you can make contact via email or phone consult to see who they would reccommend. The top docs are aware of each other.
        This is how I found my drs. email me if you want. I have a few medical friends who are excellent researchers who could help.

        From experience I have learned most drs do not want to clean up anothers "mess". Chances are you will find this dr at a teaching hospital or university.
        If you have a dr in mind, you can also check them out on pubmed to see what they have made break throughs on snd areas of special interest.
