France winger Franck Ribery successfully underwent surgery on his groin injury on Friday.
The 27-year-old has had a long-standing groin problem and it was decided before the end of last season that an operation was necessary.
Following France's early exit from the World Cup, the procedure was brought forward and Ribery went under the knife in Munich.
The news will be a welcome boost for the Frenchman's club Bayern Munich, where he has recently signed a new contract.
He must now observe 'a period of complete rest for 10 days before being able to start light running,' said Bayern physiotherapist Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt.
Ribery is expected to be fit for the start of the German season after Bayern boss Louis van Gaal granted each player competing in the World Cup three weeks holiday, starting from their team's elimination.
France had a dismal campaign in South Africa and divisions within the squad saw them exit at the group stage.
