In brief: Sometimes

It really depends on whether there was a specific injury that caused the knee arthritis or flareup of underlying arthritis.
In most cases, it isn't a great idea to claim a knee replacement needs to be done under the workers compensation carrier and place that kind of burden on your employer. That's is what medical insurance is for.
