I have spina bifida, a birth defect and i lost my left hip to an infection called osteomyolitis. I have since had multiple surgerys on my left hip and the hip keeps dislocating.It will stay in for a few weeks and then start getting loose which is followed by dislocation.After my 6th dislocation my surgeon took out the prosthetic hip.I heard about a device called a capture cup which wraps around the prosthetic joint and keeps it more stable.I don't know any more about this device or if it is real.Any information would be helpful.
