In brief: It varies

It depends on the cause of the kyphosis.
For example, kyphosis from an osteoporosis fracture is treated with a minimally invasive kyphoplasty, which has almost no recovery time. A kyphosis from a structural, non fracture deformity is similar to a scoliosis type surgery and has an approximate 12 week recovery until return to full activity. Thank you for the question.
