Vet Trachea Specialists?

Our pug has always had breathing problems. Now we find out he's got a fold in his trachea. We're in the Atlanta area and are looking for a specialist.

The vet gave us the grim news last night. Basically our pug will overheat, not be able to get enough oxygen and die. We're going to do everything we can to not stress him out and keep him very cool.
He also said if it were his dog, he wouldn't give him the surgery due to it's low success rate. But we're still going to inquire with a specialist. So does anyone a.) know any dog trachea specialists in the Georgia area (we're willing to travel to Alabama, Tenn, NC, SC, FL) and b.) is it even worth it?
Money IS an object, but we're willing to plop down a fair amount of cash for the surgery if it's worth it and will prolong his life (or give him a better one).
