The 24-year-old centre back has not featured for the Catalan outfit this term after sustaining damage to the external meniscus of his knee during the close season.
It is as yet unclear for how long Soldevilla will be sidelined following the operation.
Fellow defender Alberto Lopo underwent a scan on Tuesday to determine the damage caused by a knock he sustained to his quadriceps during last weekend's defeat at Real Valladolid.
The player has a build-up of blood in the affected area, but - although he will miss Sunday's clash with Malaga through suspension anyway - Lopo is expected to be fit for the following league encounter with Real Madrid.
