In brief: Surgery

People that had multiple traumatic shoulder dislocations are best dealt with surgery.
This is usually an arthroscopic type procedure that has a greater than 90% success rate in stopping further dislocations. For people that can voluntarily dislocate their shoulders the success rate for surgery is much less.
