I have a metal rod in my leg which will set of airport metal detectors. How do I get around this?

I have been told by someone I know who has a metal hip joint, that he has to carry a medical certificate saying this to enable him to pass airport security despite seting off metal detectors. Prior to carrying this he visited Paris and was subjected to a body search because he had no proof of his metal joint. Am I likely to have to do the same
