I would contact large university medical centers, especially those with a lot of funding and ortho depts. Also research surgeons who may have significant expertise and send them a letter asking for their help.
It may be difficult in this economic climate but not impossible.
If you are disabled according to Social Security guidelines then you may be able to get Social Security Disability status (If you have worked) and qualify for Medicare. That would solve your problem. Can you get your physician to so diagnose you or refer you to someone who can, someone who would comp your visit perhaps?
I do not knw much about hw Medicaid works but I cannot believe that in this rich nation we would not provide for someone in obvious need. Just keep rattling their chains.
Praying for you
