Iwelumo will have a piece of bone trimmed in his knee joint, and will also have a small fracture in his foot pinned.
The hit-man played on for the last three months of the season, despite carrying the injuries, but will now go under the knife in a bid to be fit for pre-season.
"I'm crossing fingers everything goes well and I'll be taking it easy this summer," said the 24-year-old.
"But it should mean I will be ready for pre-season training, and be able to get fully-fit again, so I'm looking forward to that."
