The gallbladder is an accessory organ to the gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder, located under the liver, collects and stores bile, which is made up of bile salts, electrolytes, bilirubin, cholesterol, and other fats. Bile helps the small intestine digests fats and removes waste products, especially through bilirubin. It passes from the liver’s bile duct into the duodenum through the common bile duct.
