Surgery re Kneecap discloaction

I have an 18yr old niece whose kneecap has continually dislocated for the past 10yrs or so.
She was finally referred to a knee surgeon who then carried out surgery to hold the kneecap in place.
She has had next to no physio since the suregry - about 3 sessions - surgery was mid feb.
Her kneecap came out again - surgeon now says he wants to use part of her hip bone to help solve the problem.
looking for help and guidance here please.
Thank you
