Hello, a bit about me
I am a physician specialized in the diseases of the ear , nose and throat
I have created this web site to provide doctors and patients with information about those diseases which I have been working with for many years: vertigo and hearing diseases .
First and foremost there are pages in which diagnostic problems and therapeutical modalities of this kind of disease have been treated.
There is also a description of my institutional and private activity.
There is a page were you can download some works written by dr. Coppo about vertigo and tinnitus
Moreover, you'll find an interesting page of links to scientific organisations from all over the world, found in the web, which you can join to have more information.
Finally it is possible to contact me by e-mail to ask any further questions.

The ENT examination
In my surgery you can get a more thorough and focused examination of your ears, nose, and throat.
Because most people visit specialists at a doctor’s recommendation for a very specific complaint, I will generally start by finding out what brought you into my office. I will also take note of your medical history and medications. The examination points will depend on which and how many of my specialty areas your complaint affects.
I will start by examining your throat externally and with a tongue depressor and light, just like your regular doctor, but then I may also take the examination further. Using a flexible nasolaryngoscopy inserted through the nostrils, I can get an image of your voice box and back of the throat and nose quickly and with only slight discomfort.
Usually a nasal examination involves a good light and a small speculum, butI may insert a small camera in the nostrils to investigate nasal complaints or follow-up after a surgical procedure.
A lighted otoscope is used by both general practitioners and ENTs to see the eardrums and ear canals, but an ENT doctor may also use suction to remove wax or other buildup if it obscures the view of the inner ear or is causing the complaint.
Hearing tests can also happen in order to determine whether ear complaints are affecting the patient’s ability to hear.
Your vestibular system can also be examined if you suffer from vertigo or dizziness
