In brief: 6-12 weeks is common

Hip arthroscopy comes in many flavors.
Labral repair, debridement or reconstruction recovery can be shorter than when combined with significant bony removal as with trimming of the bone from the pelvic hip socket edge (acetabulum) or with the bump that can exist about the femoral head-neck junction. Precautions against applying too much force across the resected area of bone mandates crutches x6wk
