In brief: Depends

In the properly selected patient who has clearly failed nonoperative care and has pain that is clearly coming from an arthritic knee, a knee replacement can potentially have a dramatic impact on lowering there pain and improving their function.
I would not hesitate to discuss the risks and benefits if your specific case with your surgeon.
