De Sanctis, who made 36 league appearances to help Roma finish as runners-up to Juventus in Serie A in 2013-14, had struggled with pain in his elbow over recent months.
A statement from Roma read: "Morgan De Sanctis underwent surgery at Sassuolo's Nuovo Ospedale today for the arthroscopic debridement of his right elbow.
"The operation was a complete success.
