Endocrine surgeon: Several subspecialties deal with pheochromocytoma. Endocrine surgeons work closely with endocrinologists and are therefore best equipped to take care of the entire process. Surgical oncologists and urologists are also trained to deal with this disease. It can be tricky, especially intraoperatively, so i would go to a tertiary center.
