Airport Security vs Knee Replacementsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread
I had a total Knee Replacement using the Duracon by Howmedica. With increased airport security, I cannot pass thru the metal detectors without setting off an alert. I was advised there is some documentation i can carry to offset this situation and not have to go thru extensive search procedures when checking in for my flight. Please advise.

Contact your surgeon's office. They sent me a simple "business" card with the replacement info.
