In brief: Depends

Orthopedic surgeons are better with mechanical causes of knee pain such as traumatic injuries, sports injuries, torn cartilage, and fractures.
Rheumatologists are better with inflammatory pain such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, gout, pseudogout. Both are good with the most common arthritis is the world: osteoarthritis.
