Liver Surgery Research Expands In Social Media



Liver Surgery Research Expands In Social Media

May 13, 2022

HEIDELBERG, GERMANY – In the first week of May 2022, Liver Surgery Research (LSR) expanded their social media presence, to include YouTube and TikTok, to reach a wider audience in pursuit of their mission to educate all people about the human liver and liver health in regards to liver surgery.

Liver Surgery Research’s social media growth into both YouTube and TikTok signals their expanding focus at reaching even wider and younger audiences, outside of the normal invested parties and narrow primary target audience. LSR realizes that knowledge has value and should not be available to only the educated, privileged, and narrow medical and scientific specialty fields, especially in an era when fighting “fake news” and misinformation is vital to global information sharing. Through utilizing open, free, and popular social media channels, Liver Surgery Research hopes to provide some clarity and equity in the spread of knowledge on the liver and liver surgery.

Liver Surgery Research will use these social platforms to focus on educating the general public, not only through the sharing of LSR’s research (which is often published in open access journals), but additionally, to post content that provides easy to understand facts in the areas of Liver Surgery Research’s expertise.

Liver Surgery Research can be found on YouTube at or by searching the term “Liver Surgery Research.”
