Will the screws in my foot set off the alarms at the airport?


This is a common concern among many post-surgery patients. So far, the type of metal and the small quantities in which we use them have not caused airport metal detectors to sound.

It is always a good idea to alert security staff if you have any sort of metal implant, but you shouldn't experience any issues with small metal screws in your feet.

Contact us today to set up an appointment or to ask any questions regarding our surgical or post-surgical procedures.
