Topo to Raster: Forcing an input constraint

Hi all,

I've hit a bit of a wall in my work and was wondering if there was anyone out there that could help me out.

I'm trying to use the Topo to Raster function to create an interpolated elevation surface with both contour and point inputs. I can create a standard interpolated surface just fine using the default settings but what I actually wanted was to force the interpolated surface to equal these contour and/or point input constraints at their respective locations (since the data at these points are essentially known to be "exact"). Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this or if this is possible in ArcGIS/ArcScene?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
