Interactive cases on achalasia

Given the succes of our first and interactive meeting in March on GEJ cancer, during this session we aim to bring alive the discussion on treatment of achalasia disorders. As an introduction, we will enlighten endoscopic and surgical techniques in the treatment of achalasia. Then an interactive case discussion will bring these views together, moderated by our expert panel. We aim again towards young general surgeons, trainees and staff general surgeons to discuss these cases and go into discussion with the faculty.
