No. All you can get are your work comp wage and medical benefits.
PA law does not allow for you to sue your employer for anything other than workers compensation benefits. You should speak with an attorney experienced in workers compensation law. Call me for a free consult.
As others have said, the answer is no, but you may have a potential claims against other parties. Also, you may have a claim for additional money due to any surgical scar. That is why it is best to contact an experienced lawyer. Feel free to contact me at (800) 433-9700 or (412) 471-6463 for a free consultation. I have handled many worker injury cases, including obtaining money for scars, as well as claims against other parties for defective equipment and negligence.
