In brief: Fairly quickly

A well performed arthroscopy with partial medial meniscectomy does not damage anything and merely removes a painful mechanical tear. As soon as the knee calms down and overall strength has returned, return to activities is safe.
This can be anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months, depending on the person. The majority of recovery is getting back quad strength and range of motion.
