Patient is a 77year old female who presented to the Surgery clinic with chronic cough and dysphagia. The work-up included an EGD, manometry and upper GI study.  The patient's manometry study results were consistent with achalasia. Interestingly, the EGD and Upper GI demonstrated a massive epiphrenic diverticulum.  Surgical management utilized a multi-modal approach using endoscopy, laparoscopy and robotics.
