Patients Worry about Metal Detectors when Traveling

One of the top articles read this summer on the AAHKS patient education website is, “Will my artificial joint set off airport security metal detectors?” This is a common concern of patients who have had hip or knee replacement surgery. The article provides information that it is likely the metal in the implant will be detected, and that it’s best to inform the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer before screening begins. Read the article and send your patients here for this and many more informative articles and videos on hip and knee care.
