I broke the audio line-out jack on my laptop! Help!

I recently, in a disastrous combination of clumsiness and bad speaker arrangement, tripped over the cord connecting my speakers to my Sony Vaio laptop. This caused the plug to bend against the inside of the jack with quite a bit of force. Now any speakers or headphones plugged into this jack do not work at all, unless held at a certain angle, and even this only makes sound come out of one speaker, while sound continues to come from the laptop speaker. Is there a way to fix or replace this jack, or pay someone to do it?
