In brief: Depends

Hi fmuprhy, you need to specify a little more, rehabilitation for what condition.
Rehabilitation for a minor sprain/strain may only be a couple of weeks, whereas rehabilitation for a stroke or spinal cord injury could take several months in an inpatient setting.

In brief: Rehabilitation

This is an interesting question since there is no reason that rehab is needed given in the question.
If the question is about joint replacement surgery the duration of recovery is variable depending on the joint involved, recovery from knee replacement is usually harder and longer than hip surgery. The physical condition before surgery and individual motivation affect rehab more than anything.
