In brief: Variable @ 6-12 wks

The extent and length of physical therapy after hip arthroscopy depends upon the exact nature of the procedure performed.
Routinely patients attend procedure specific therapy twice weekly for 6-12 weeks postoperatively. Discuss your specific situation with your surgeon.

In brief: Depending

Depending on the type of procedure performed, physical therapy usually takes about 3 months.
Usually patients go 2-3 times a week. Again, the exact duration and frequency does depend on the procedure(s) that were performed.
