If the laptop was *off* warranty and you're real good with a soldering iron, you could go ahead and replace the port. It's likely to be a surface-mount connector with two through-holes for anchoring and shield ground.
I've ruined a board by attempting this - don't try it if you aren't already experienced at repair work.
(My old BlackBerry had the exact same problem, the plastic in the USB connector broke.)
What brand of laptop is it?
