damaged faucet valve seat

Dear Terry,

One of the compression faucets in my shower has a valve seat in which the notched interior (the area normally adapted to a valve seat wrench) is gone - probably due to poor original installation. I'm left with a nearly smooth interior & a very stuck seat. The faucet is leaking due to a damaged seat surface. In addition, a close elbow just beyond the seat makes the use of standard seat wrenches impossible. Any suggestions?

P.S. Great site!!
