Pipe broken off in mating pipe

The male threaded portion of the shower head pipe is broken off in the female portion of the galvanized pipe elbow in the wall. How can I get the broken off portion turned out so I can install a new pipe? Thanks.

Maybe. They make a internal pipe wrench. That should work but I usually end up breaking the internal pipe wrench with out getting the pipe out. Never tried it but I would suggest a large easy out. The plumbers may have a better suggestion so wait for them.
