In brief: Yes.
I have done thousands without\ serious issues to my patients, except for bleeding from a punctured deep blood vessell.
If properly done, great pain relief can be obtained.

In brief: Generally yes
Your anesthesiologist will cover the risks/benefits prior to doing.
In many cases it may be safer than general anesthesia or opioids for pain, though there are risks. I personally am a big fan, though opinions vary.
