The Chiefs centre, who spoke to Newstalk ZB, said going under the knife was a smart decision that would see him on the field faster.
"I just had an operation Friday just gone," he said.
"(It was) more of a loosen up, get rid of some scar tissue to help free it up a and it's done wonders. It's saved me a month and a half of waiting."
The Chiefs play their final pre-season match against the Hurricanes at Mangatainoka on Saturday, while they kick off their first competition match against the Highlanders at Dunedin on February 22 - both matches in which Kahui is unlikely to play.
The franchise also confirmed that Brendan Leonard has a cheekbone injury and will miss the season opener.
