How can I get jaw surgery in Italy?

This is pretty random. I had jaw surgery and it didn't come out as planned. I did some research and found a surgeon who works in Rome and I'm interested in consulting him for a revision. He has decades of experience and a particular technique that I think is the right one to fix it. Also, I was born in Italy and I'm an Italian citizen.

How the heck can I get in touch with an Italian surgeon from the US? It takes months to get walk in appointments, and I can't even make such an appointment without a health insurance ID card that I have to get in person, and it is made via phone operator and one must have a referral of some sort. Can I hire someone to facilitate this? Write a letter? Is it even feasible that I'd get in to see this surgeon, period? Is there some way to get this guy on the phone so I know if he can even potentially help me, before I spend 6 months on the appointment process?
Anyone with advice about Italian medical services would be very appreciated!!
