Can I replace my MacBook Pro Top Case?

Ok so I have a 17" MacBook Pro and it's a mid 2010 model. I have lots of scratches on the top case by the trackpad, on the speak grill, and also on the side by the magsafe port and the ethernet port. I was looking for a sticker to hide it but now I really want to get it replaced. Can I replace the top case? Well I or who ever replaces it have to take out everything in it and put it in the new one?

Sounds to hard. I fount something called my service or something like that online that will replace the top case for $399. Would that be for what I'm talking about?
