Dr Tracy Coelho

Consultant Gastroenterologist


"I love working at Spire. The atmosphere is very friendly and supportive."

Specialises in

I am currently a consultant in paediatric gastroenterology at the Southampton Children’s Hospital. I joined the hospital as a consultant in 2014 after completing my clinical training in Paediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology at King’s college hospital London, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Southampton Children’s Hospital and Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital Brighton.

I have a particular interest in the management of inflammatory bowel disease, gut dysmotility, immune-mediated conditions of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract, functional GI disorders, food allergies and nutritional problems. Gastro-intestinal (GI) disorders can have a wide spectrum of manifestations including chronic diarrhoea, abdominal pain, poor weight gain, blood in stools, reflux, swallowing difficulties, chronic constipation, tiredness and others. I am well-experienced in the full breadth of GI conditions in children and investigations including paediatric upper and lower GI endoscopies, as well as video capsule endoscopies.

In addition to my clinical work, I am also proud to be an honorary senior lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Southampton,
