About Me

Your digestive health contributes to your quality of life. Christopher Hurley, MD, gastroenterologist at Avera Medical Group Gastroenterology in Sioux Falls, SD, is a trusted expert in diagnosing conditions of the GI tract as well as helping patients improve and manage their gut health.

His interest in becoming a physician came naturally; his father was a pathologist, so he grew up in an environment understanding the importance of human health and life.

An Expert GI Team that Works for You

When you meet with Dr. Hurley, his first goal is to create a patient-focused environment. Know that he has dealt with countless patients who have encountered the same experiences as you have, so he encourages you to talk freely about your situation.

While every patient is unique, Dr. Hurley and his colleagues have vast experience and the expertise to work with you to create and implement a treatment plan to most effectively care for you.

Your Quality of Life Matters

“I take every case seriously. My ultimate goal is to alleviate pain and worry by offering a diagnosis and treatment plan that will help resolve or reduce your symptoms as well as the issue at hand,” said Dr. Hurley.

Some of Dr. Hurley’s areas of special interest include:

  • Treating disorders and procedures of the pancreas and liver
  • Managing refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Performing ERCP procedures, esophageal pH studies and colon screenings

Active Lifestyle

When Dr. Hurley isn’t at the clinic or hospital, he enjoys traveling, relaxing with some of his favorite movies or attending major sporting events, particularly hockey. One interesting piece of Dr. Hurley’s story is that he used to be a private pilot.
