In brief: Unfortunately none

Hi Hallie It sounds like you are "loose jointed".
There are no good surgeries to fix this problem. The best way to deal with this to to try to strengthen the muscles around the joint to give them extra support. Your best bet is to work with a physical therapist, you will need to do the exercises for the rest of your life to stay strong as your loose joints are not going to change.
