Got an artificial knee? Expect any metal in it to set off airport metal detectors. To avoid that, here's what to do.
First, inform a Transportation Security Administration officer about your knee before you’re screened. (If you want to be discreet, you can download a TSA Notification Card to show the officer, although a card isn’t required.)
The TSA won’t accept a note from your doctor or a medical card, so expect to be screened by either advanced imaging technology or a pat-down.
Consider wearing loose clothing, so if you must undergo a pat-down, you can easily show the TSA officer your scar.
