In brief: Good

The field of hip arthroscopy has grown significantly over the last several years.
The procedure is typically done as an outpatient, and involves several small incisions. For some conditions recovery can be as quick as a month, while for others 4-6 months.

In brief: Variable

The hip arthroscopy is still young.
Depending on the expertise of your surgeon, and the amount of work to be done, the hip arthroscopy can be minimally painful or can be very uncomfortable for months. When we reshape the bone and repair the labrum, it is a good amount of surgery (though less than an open surgery). If we just look or clean up, it is quite benign.
