Related experience


Mr Munot pioneered a novel innovative therapeutic treatment for granulomatous mastitis of breast, which is a rare, benign but disfiguring inflammatory breast condition. He has devised a completely novel treatment for this complex condition using ultrasound guided aspiration of inflammatory cavity contents followed by instillation of long acting steroids into the inflammatory breast cavity. This has revolutionised the management of this disfiguring condition.

Mr Munot was awarded MD for research in the genetics and epigenetics of breast cancer - ‘Pattern of expression of genes linked to epigenetic silencing in breast cancer – is there evidence for an epigenetic phenotype?’
