In brief: Balance risk
Knee replacement is a tough procedure and requires significant physical therapy after surgery.
There is a small percentage of unsatisfied patients but if the pt is desperate or have to take strong painkillers around the clock and has no significant risks for the surgery is better to run the risk.

In brief: It sure may
Although, there is no 100% guarantee on anything, i'd say you have very good chances of being pain free after knee replacement.

In brief: Most of the time
Knee replacement is performed to help patients with painful arthritis of the knee, to restore function and for some to correct deformity.
So when non surgical methods for controlling your knee arthritis pain no longer work, knee replacement is a surgical way to help reduce your pain. Most pain is decreased a lot, some almost completely, and some may still have other sources of pain still.
