Following further assessment, the 27-year-old had an operation on Friday afternoon, reports TheFA.com.
Christiansen will now begin a rehabilitation programme as she aims to be fit for this summer’s World Cup finals.
Head coach Phil Neville said: “We were delighted to hear from Izzy yesterday and that her operation went well.
“We are all wishing her a speedy recovery and will be supporting her in every way we can over her rehabilitation period.”
