Shoulder specialist around Chicago?

I posted a while back (w/fs) here on the board about a shoulder/back issue I was having. Well, another new chiropractor later the problem still remains. So now I'm thinking I need to go see a physical therapist, orthopedist, or...? (not sure what else there is)

So can anyone recommend a shoulder specialist in the Chicago, IL area? Ideally I would like someone who has studied the left shoulder for a 40 year career but assuming no such person exists, then someone with excellent clinical results would fit the bill nicely. Basically I don't want to spend any more time and money on visits that are not likely to help me in the long term. Is there any specific doctor you have worked with or a colleague you can recommend? Or, failing that, are there any specific institutions that are considered good for this sort of thing? (Around me are Rush U Med Center, UIC Med Center, some others).

Any advice or information is greatly appreciated since otherwise I will simply be clicking the doctors with the most amusing names on bluecross.com
