The former Scunthorpe defender went under the knife after struggling with the injury for the entire campaign.
Jones is now on the road to recovery and hopes to be heading a ball again in eight to 10 weeks.
"I'm very happy with how it has gone from the operation to now and at what stage I'm at," he told the club website.
"Now I hope it continues getting better."
Jones feels his added maturity at the age of 34 has helped him resist making a comeback too early.
"If this had happened five years ago I might have found it harder," he added.
"It was a serious operation and it's been a few crazy months for me, so I have to make sure I do not compromise my rehab."
