How can data be recovered from a broken hard drive?

My professor dropped an external hard drive, while it was running, and it broke. He tried three data recovery specialists so far, but all have come up with nothing. The specialists have replaced the heads, but the drive remained unreadable, although the platter didn’t shatter.

Are there any specialists in really broken hard drives? His entire life, including ridiculously long academic works, like his dissertation, are all on that drive.
