Options re Finding a Dr.

Is it possible to find an orthopedic surgeon that accepts a new patient after a hip replacement? If so, please advise "how". Had a hip replacement 2 years ago. Would like to try a different dr. for other hip (nothing personal, just preference.) 1st thing asked when I call a dr. office is if I've had any orthopedic surgery. When response is "yes", I'm advised the dr. called does not accept patients w/ history of orthopedic surgery. This has happened repeatedly in a small Ga. town. Moving (regrettably) is not an option. Hope this question isn't too specific. If so, please excuse.
