Total hip replacement in patient with neurological condition

My mother is 70, she broke her hip and has undergone a total hip replacement surgery. 3 weeks after the surgery she suffered a dislocation of the prosthesis. Although there is no fracture and the prosthesis is in good condition, a surgeon has suggested that she needs to undergo a further surgery to modify the prosthesis. This is because, as she suffered a stroke 25 years ago, and has a residual hemiparesis on the hip replacement side, the surgeon thinks that dislocations will reoccur. My mother, before the fall was walking with a walking stick. Is there anybody who can comment on whether there are specific prosthesis for people in my mother’s condition? Thanjs
