ERCP is almost always the first choice. If it can't be cleared this way a common bile duct exploration needs to be done. Although there are a few surgeons trained to do these laparoscopically, the majority are done open. In your situation, connecting the common bile duct to the duodenum (choledochoduodenostomy) should be considered. Following this procedure, any small stones that may still form in the CBD should pass harmlessly into the intestine.
