In 2014, I was asked to present Grand Rounds by Professor John Hunter at the Oregon Health and Science University. I had completed a minimally invasive surgery fellowship under his (and Dr. Brett Sheppard’s) tutelage in 2005, and it was a great honour to return as a visiting professor. The topic assigned to me was ‘Achalasia’. Unfortunately, not the more comfortable topics of gastro-esophageal reflux or upper gastrointestinal cancer!
