Do I need to register my knee replacement ID card

Customer Question

Do I need to register my knee replacement ID card for security purposes at the airlines, or is just having this card on my person enough to get through security with no hassles?

Dear customer,
Thanks for your question.
Having the card with you is sufficient, but also inform the security staff about the knee replacement surgery and if required they may check your surgical scar.
