Hi, the history you give is consistent with a recurrent dislocation or subluxation of the shoulder. Recurrent dislocation can be traumatic as in your case or atraumatic(not due to injury). Traumatic dislocations will need surgery in order to prevent recurrence. There are various types of surgery which will depend on the injury,MRI and /or ct scan findings and physical examination by the Orthopedic surgeon. Please consult an orthopedic surgeon
