In brief: Activity After Scope

Many activities can be resumed after a hip arthroscopy.
In fact, professional football players, baseball players, and basketball players are returning to high level activity after this type of surgery. The recovery can take a few months, and extensive physical therapy is required to make the best recovery, but returning to sports, including dance, is possible.

In brief: Likely yes

About 82% of pro athletes return to play at the same level as prior to a hip scope.
The average time to return to play at the professional level for impact athletes varies but is usually about 4 months. Even patients requiring cartilage work during hip arthroscopy (microfracture) return to play at the rate of about 78%.
