The gall bladder is a nonessential organ. It may be removed surgically—a procedure called cholecystectomy—if it is diseased or injured. Once the gall bladder is removed, bile flows directly to the small intestine. Excess bile is then stored in the bile duct. Individuals who have had their gall bladder removed lead a normal life and enjoy their regular diet.
