In general you go to a sports medicine Dr, for such aliments, The best sports medicine doctors are generally located in cities where large ivy league schools are. Harvard Boston, Yale Conn, Stanford SF. etc....

I had a drummer years ago who had bad tendonitis and he got on the Internet and found a Dr. in Cambridge, MA that operated on MLB pitchers. The guy cured him through some fusion surgery. So look for those type of guys who do Tommy John Surgery. I can't recall the Dr. name it was 20 years ago.

However, I would think that any reputable orthopedic surgeon in a large metro area can help you. I could be wrong but sometimes you have to get lucky to find a creative Dr. you thinks outside the box,
