The singer announced this information at a concert in London yesterday.
"I'm fine, I'm fine, everything is fine, I have donors and everything is fine," the 69-year-old singer told a concert at the British Summer Time Music Show in Hyde Park.
After singing the song "Superstition", he addressed the audience saying he wanted to prevent "rumors" spreading about his health.
"I want you to know, I came to greet you and thank you for your love," he said. "I love you and God bless you!" He added.
The singer will be operative in September, and before that will hold several more concerts.
Support to Stevie Wonder at the concert in London was his friend Lionel Richie.
In 2017, Wonder paid tribute to the former frontman Komodores, performing the song "Easy" at a ceremony in his honor at the Kennedy Center.
Ritchie later said: "I went into business because I wanted to be like Steve Wonder, and Steve is singing my song, it's surreal."
Wonder, who is blind from birth, is known for classics like "Superstition", "You are the Sunshine of my Life" and "Living for the City".
