Brief Answer: Hi there, it is a treatment for osteoarthritis. Detailed Answer: Hello there, thanks for asking. Knee replacement is not a treatment for neuropathy. However, it does not have any negative effect on your neuropathy. It could be done if you have significant osteoarthritis which inhibits you from work and activity. I hope you a good health and enjoyable life.
