    Works for Specialty Center

Djemil has served at the Cleveland Clinic since 2000, specializing in stereotactic body radiation therapy and intensity-modulated radiation therapy.

He also does stereotactic radiosurgery, a nonsurgical radiation therapy often used to treat early stage brain cancers.

Cleveland Clinic Florida, located in Weston, was the top-ranked hospital in South Florida according to the 2018 U.S. News & World Report annual rankings. It was No. 2 in the tri-county region in 2017.

The center, which completed a major expansion in 2018, is well known for its world-class care of patients, much like its parent operation in Ohio.

“As a premier academic medical center known for providing complex care for the sickest of patients, it was vital for both the local community and the region that we expand,” Florida CEO and President Dr. Wael Barsoum said. “I’m proud of the incredible commitment of our caregivers to achieve clinical excellence through patient-centered care.”

Pioneer for Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy

As the leader in stereotactic body radiation therapy, Djemil has played a prominent role in that rise. The procedure involves very intense and precise doses of radiation.

He treats mesothelioma, lung cancer, esophageal cancer, breast cancer, brain cancer and thyroid cancer, among others.

Djemil worked previously at 21st Century Oncology in Fort Myers, specializing in the CyberKnife System, a robotic radiosurgery treatment for inoperable tumors.

He also worked four years at Covenant Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas.

Djemil, who speaks Arabic, French and English, is co-author of a medical textbook, “Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy.”

He graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
