Northland Orthopedic & Sports Medicine welcomes orthopedic nurse practitioner
Ann Chizek-Liermann, NP, has joined Northland Orthopedic & Sports Medicine. She will be providing care in the orthopedics department of Ministry Medical Group, located at 444 E. Timber Drive in Rhinelander.
Chizek-Liermann is an orthopedic nurse practitioner who assists patients with a variety of issues including osteoporosis treatment and prevention. She is experienced in applying casts and splints, and can provide injections necessary to treat orthopedic injuries. She earned her master’s in nursing from Concordia College of Nursing in Mequon, and her bachelor’s in nursing from Carroll College/Columbia College in Milwaukee. She is certified in basic life support.
“Orthopedic problems can be difficult to treat,” said Chizek-Liermann. “That’s why I emphasize prevention whenever possible. I don’t just make recommendations; I strive to get buy-in from the patient and their family. I want them to actively participate in the decision-making process so that they are comfortable with the plan of care.”
