Stoma hernia surgeon recommendation in NJ

I'm pretty sure I have a stoma hernia (ileostomy) and I am starting on my quest of locating a surgeon. Any advice on how to proceed? My ileostomy is 33 years old (I'm 64) due to ulcerative colitis. I'm in central NJ but Idon't really want to do the NY or Philly route. It's not painful but it's getting larger. My local dr recommended a surgeon in Princeton but I really want to find someone that has done these things routinely. Any way of finding this out other than calling up a bunch of surgeons and trying to ask them? But how can you be sure that what they tell you is true.
