Will I set off the metal detectors at the airport? Do I need a doctor's letter?
You will probably set off the alarm as you progress through the security checkpoint. Be proactive and inform the security personnel that you have had a total joint replacement and will most likely set off the alarm. Wear clothing that will allow you to show them your incision without difficulty. A letter from your physician or a wallet card is no longer of any help when passing through security checkpoints.
