The much famed US surgeon Dr Richard Steadman has carried out the operation which has been deemed a success.
The Ajax stopper will leave hospital next Sunday, but will not return to Holland until November 8.
"The leg feels good," Heitinga told Ajax's website.
"By resting and keeping ice on the knee it will be alright. You will see."
The Dutch youth international injured his knee in Ajax's game against NAC Breda in September.
