My friend experienced the same issue (multiple dislocations) and sought a surgeon experienced in complex revisions. He finally determined she had a damaged ligament and tendon that were too weak to help hold things in place, and a custom brace was built to support the hip as it healed. It was only removed for PT & showering for several months, then she slowly weaned off wearing it.
Have they determined the cause of your dislocations?
