In brief: Yes

If your orthopedic surgeon is concerned about you possibly having rheumatoid arthritis, you should take it seriously and see a rheumatologist soon for further evaluation.
I get a relatively high percentage of referrals from orthopedic surgeons who truly have inflammatory arthritis (compared to referrals from primary care docs and other subspecialist physicians).An MRI with contrast can prove it.

Possibly, but could be simply knee instability.
