Unhappy HELP!!! Need endo/vascular surgeon desperately

I'm a 54 yr w/m currently being treated by Augusta,Ga. Veteran's Medical Center, Medical, College of Georgia, and Greenville SC Memorial Hospital Group.
In 2001 MCG installed a Greenfield filter in my inferior vena cava. A cavagram last year confimed a 100% occlusion of the IVC. Due to the occlusion, I'm suddenly in a wheelchair, and have hematomas/lesions all over my face and especially upper eyelids.
Vasculary surgery at VAMC and MCG, and Greenville say that there is nothing they can do!!! However, my research on the web says otherwise .
"Nothing we can do" is unacceptable!!!
Some one out there PLEASE point me to a doctor familiar with the baloon and Gianturco stent procedure, or any of the others, who can get this IVC patent again. The rest of my life is dependent on it.
