The Irishman pulled up with the problem while warming up for the Scottish Premiership clash with Aberdeen on 7 April.
Heffernan will now sit out the final five games of the season, starting with Saturday's trip to St Mirren Park.
The absence of the 32-year-old is a blow for Hibs boss Terry Butcher as his team look to escape the relegation play-off spot.
Long-term absentee Paul Hanlon remains out of action with a knee injury, and while Scott Robertson (knee) and James McPake (back) are both back in training, they are unlikely to feature against the Buddies.
