The former Arsenal ace damaged right-knee ligaments in Dortmund's 2-2 draw with Schalke in their opening game of the Bundesliga season on Saturday and he faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Demel underwent surgery on Monday and he is not expected back in action until October at the earliest.
The 22-year-old joins Germany midfielder Torsten Frings and Brazilian defender Evanilson on the long-term injury list at Dortmund.
