The surgery was performed by Dr. David Chao of the team's medical staff. Rivers will rehab for up to six months.
Rivers was hurt in a 28-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional playoffs, but was able to play Sunday in the Chargers' 21-12 loss to undefeated New England in the AFC championship game.
Rivers revealed Monday that he had arthroscopic surgery a day after the Indianapolis game to clean out damaged cartilage. He said that was the only way he was able to play against the Patriots.
