Board-certified Adult Nurse Practitioner Elisabeth (Lisa) Zane has joined Bothwell Urology Services.

Nurse Practitioners (NPs) provide advanced patient care under the guidance and supervision of a collaborating physician.

At the clinic, Zane will diagnose and treat urinary tract disorders, bladder problems, incontinence, prostate disease and male reproductive health issues.

A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Zane received a master’s degree in Nursing-Adult Geriatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner from University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri. Prior to joining Bothwell, she worked for nine years in leading teaching Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas Medical Center.

While practicing as a Registered Nurse in Texas, Zane worked in several clinical environments including medical/surgical and intensive/progressive care covering a wide variety of medical conditions such as cardiac, neurological, neurosurgery, gastrointestinal and urology. Zane said her breadth of experiences give her a whole-body approach to patient care.

“As a nurse, I rarely got to see patients after they left the hospital,” she said. “As a Nurse Practitioner, I get to be an ongoing part of their care and progression. I want to build on the knowledge I already have to care for the whole patient. I love having the opportunity to proactively help people through prevention, education and treatment so they can take control and improve their quality of life."

Keith Morrow, Bothwell’s Clinic Operations vice president, said Zane joins Dr. Steve Foster and Nurse Practitioner Dena Jenkins in Bothwell Urology Services to help care for area residents and their urological health care needs.

“Lisa has a wide spectrum of experiences that will benefit our patients,” he said. “Along with her expert clinical skills, she is a compassionate caregiver and an excellent communicator that will allow her to connect with patients and learn their unique stories and histories as she helps them with their health issues."

Zane said she wants people to know their needs are the most important to her and that she’s excited to be back in Missouri and at Bothwell.

“Being a nurse provides a unique opportunity to come alongside someone at their most vulnerable and be their comfort and support when they need it most. I love helping people and creating partnerships with my patients.” she said. “It’s also an exciting time in medicine because there are new treatments, procedures and medications available every day. I love that Bothwell is committed to being a leading force in this area.”
Bothwell Urology Services is located at 1715 S. Lafayette Street in Sedalia.
