Her rep tells PEOPLE the surgery was "successful" and that "she is currently at home recovering. Her husband, Matt Treanor is with her."
The 31-year-old beach volleyball star, who won her second Olympic gold medal in Beijing in August, injured herself while rehearsing the jive with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy last Friday.
Doctors estimate it will take approximately nine months of recovery and rehabilitation before May-Treanor can return to the volleyball court.
"I would come back to the ballroom if they asked me back," May-Treanor said on Monday's DWTS broadcast. -- Monica RizzoCraig Sjodin/ABC
