Relatively quickly: Arthroscopic surgery typically allows a patient faster recovery and thus quicker return to work. However, recovery also depends on the findings of the surgery, any procedures performed during arthroscopy, and complications. Your type of work will also dictate if you can return to full duty (baseball pitcher will take longer than a secretary).
