A member asked:

How long do you have to wait to have a hip arthroscopy to repair labrum in hip and shave the bone after you had a steroid injection in that same spot?

A general rule is to wait at least 90 days after a steroid injection before doing surgery. Studies have shown that there is a slightly higher risk of infection if an invasive procedure is done before then.
