knee replacement

Had a noncement total knee done five years ago.  Gradually experiencing more pain in left side of knee and across the area above knee. Now knee is very painful just to physically move it. Area visually swollen, can see swelling through clothing.   Bone scan did not rule out loosening.  X-rays show no loosening.  Now walk with limp and have trouble going up and down stairs because knee does not bend.  Dr. gave seroid pack, didn't help.  He has no other solutions.  Any ideas?  How can I go about finding an experience knee surgeon who has experience with revisions?
