The Lyon striker injured his right knee during a reserve team outing, and tests confirmed he had ruptured ligaments in the joint.
He was sent to Professor Moyen for surgery, which reportedly went without a hitch and should allow him to start his rehabilitation programme in the near future.
The loss of the 26-year-old one-time French international dealt a hammer blow to Lyon`s hopes of catching Lens at the head of Le Championnat.
Lyon trail Lens by four points, but Nee will have to concentrate on getting fit for next term.
