Treatment of a zenker's diverticulum is generally surgical.
In proper candidates, treatment can be accomplished trans-orally with a surgical stapler.

In brief: Surgery
Zenker's diverticulum is more prevalent in older people but can be an important factor in causing aspiration pneumonia as well as being prone to perforation.
Unfortunately, the only cure option is surgical.
