The club confirmed on Wednesday that the Argentina international will go under the knife on Saturday, having been out of action for five months.
Lamela, who last featured in a 2-1 EFL Cup loss to Liverpool on October 25, will miss the final 10 league games of the campaign.
The 25-year-old joined Spurs from Roma in 2013 and, after an underwhelming first season, had established himself as a regular starter under Mauricio Pochettino before this setback.
