My shoulder dislocated many years back for the first time, playing cricket. Has dislocated many times over the years, but in the past few months it has been dislocated 6 times. I consulted a doctor, been diagnosed as "Bankart Lesion". My query is - can it be treated without needing surgery?

No it can not be treated without surgery. Three small capsules will be placed in your rotator cuff using surgery.
