In brief: Yes and no

You never want to get a joint replacement if you don't have to, because it's never as good as the real thing.
However, if your elbow is painful and arthritic, total elbow arthroplasty (tea) is a good option. Tea is also used when the joint is destroyed due to trauma and cannot be reconstructed.
