What does this mean?

Obv infections in surgically repaired body parts aren't good...
I'm no doctor, nor did I sleep at a Holiday Inn Express, but my wife (played collegiate tennis) has had both hips and one shoulder scoped.

I'd guess the doc will scrape & clean out the infected area and treat with heavy duty antibiotics. His recovery time will probably depend on the severity of the infection, how much scraping/cleaning has to be done, & how well his body reacts to the antibiotics.
