In brief: Fracture
It generally takes 6 to 10 weeks to heal a patella fracture.
Certainly the severity of the injury and how it is treated will influence healing time. Some patella fractures are treated with surgery and some are not.

In brief: Fractured patella
A fractured patella normally takes about 6 weeks to heal.
After that it takes some more time to regain motion and strength.
