If you verify that the slabs of your patio area are sufficiently secure, the next step will be to wheedle out the damaged mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. When you're done, give the entire area a really good cleanup and carry out the re-grouting using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in technique.
