In brief: Potentially

There are some types of arthritis that in some cases can be cured it at least out into remission.
Diet can play a large part as well.

In brief: Depends

Joint replacement is an excellent means of successfully treating arthritis.
Other methods can help with pain but don't prevent progression of arthritis.

If it's a type of inflammatory arthritis like RA then I would think joint replacement is a last choice and utterly unnecessary if treated
