The 26-year-old Slovakian was forced off during Genoa's 2-1 defeat at Cagliari and subsequent medical tests have revealed the extent of the damage.
A statement published on Genoa's official website confirmed Kucka will be visited by specialist doctor Pierpaolo Mariani on Tuesday in order to establish a date for surgical intervention.
The former Sparta Prague player - who has made 11 league appearances, scoring two goals this season - had been a reported January transfer target for AC Milan.
