Your surgery is becoming more and more common, which means more hospital and doctors are becoming experts. I don't know of specific Drs, but try to find the biggest hospital in your area, and speak with their chief of surgery. He/she will know which dr. will best suit your case.
If you can travel, Mass General has the #2 crohns and colitis center in the US (Mayo is #1), so you might consider that as an option.
If you really get strapped, might something like Angie's List help?
Good luck and I hope your surgery goes well.
