In brief: Depends
It depends on the location.
Subluxation is defined by motion of a joint beyond the normal. Shoulder and hips are mobile joints that often sublux. Both situations involve as much nonoperative measures as surgery. Surgery usually involves repair of a labrum or other torn stabilizing elements.
