In brief: Mild-mod postop pain

Hip arthroscopy is usually outpatient, same-day surgery.
If you have a torn labrum, your surgeon will either remove the non repairable torn portion or potentially repair the torn labrum with sutures and small permanent anchors place in the bone to hold it in place while you heal it over the ensuing 6- 8 weeks. Rehabilitation is usually recommended after surgery.

In brief: Clarify question

A hip "scope" refers to a hip arthroscopy.
A procedure where a cartilage tear about the hip socket can be treated. I'm wondering if someone recommended a hip "scope" for your symptoms. Feel free to contact me for more info.
