In brief: Yes

Laparoscopic surgery to remove the gallbladder is the standard of care for this procedure and is very safe in the hands of surgeons experienced in this procedure.
It is one of the most common operations done today. Most of the time it is done outpatient and complications are rare.

In brief: Yes

While all surgery has risks, having your gallbladder removed is the most common general surgery performed in the United States.
Most patients will tell us that having their gallbladder out is easier than going through attacks. While there are risks with all surgery, and you should understand them and go through them with your surgeon- know that it is normal to be scared.
