In brief: Surgery.

Most times if you're disl;ocating more than 3 times, you may require surgical stabilization.

In brief: May need surgery

If the shoulder continues to dislocate after a course of physical therapy and/or activity modification, an unstable shoulder typically requires surgery to tighten up the labrum, capsule and ligaments.

In brief: Further workup

Multiple shoulder dislocations warrant a visit to an orthopedic surgeon for further workup.
There are some treatable conditions that can help for the patient with multiple shoulder dislocations. Physical exam, xray and/or MRI scan can be helpful to identify the underlying problem. Surgical intervention is sometimes needed.
