The Italian defender was struck in a penalty box fracas during Sunday's clash with Bologna and had to leave the pitch in the final minutes of the game.
Adani's injury left Alberto Zaccheroni's side with a numerical disadvantage, as the Internazionale coach had already utilised his allocated three substitutes.
The operation has been deemed a success by club medics and Adani is set for an almost immediate return.
The big defender is set to miss Wednesday's Coppa Italia match against Reggina, but should be ready to return to the Internazionale first team for the crucial weekend clash with Lazio.
It is expected that Adani will wear a special protective mask during the next few weeks.
