Have you tried Emory University? Do they have a medical center? Most orthopeadic surgeons I talked to around here ( I'm in the Southeast ) either refused to do that type of surgery or didn't recommend it.

It's pretty well established that foot surgery should be tried last after other conservative treatments have failed. ESWT should be tried before surgery, at the very least.

If you've already tried these other methods then good luck with finding a good doctor. You might want to try contacting your local hospital and asking them for advice.
