In brief: Depends

How rapidly one recovers from mal-tracking surgery depends on the method employed to correct the mal-tracking.
Arthroscopic lateral release will take anywhere from 6-10 weeks for full recovery. Tibial tubercle osteotomy will easily take twice that long. Vmo advancement and medial capsular plication will take about 12 weeks for recovery.

The initial surgical recovery is short. Seeing the full benefits of the surgery takes much longer.

In brief: PF maltrack

Depends what is done: lateral release, medial reefing, allograft medial pf procedure.
Consider 6-12 weeks including rehab.
