Mauri was forced off an hour into Saturday's 1-1 draw with Udinese after suffering a facial injury in an accidental clash with Jorge Vargas.
The midfielder is due to go under the surgeon's knife at the start of the week, but is expecting to make a swift return.
Coach Delio Rossi has not ruled out the possibility of Mauri playing in a face mask against Fiorentina next weekend.
Mauri only joined Lazio in January, moving to the Eternal City on loan from Udinese.
