    I agree with the others, as long as you can pass the PT/PAT you probably aren't going to have any issues.

    You'd be fine hear as long as you can pass the agility test and the range of motion tests in your physical. I went through the academy with a guy with a prosthetic leg above the knee. He struggled with one part of the agility test but ultimately passed and went on to work in LE for a few years before taking a better offer in the private sector.

    I work with a guy that has a total replacement and he can do his job just fine. It has been stated above already, but once again, if you can pass the physical and medical testing phases you should be good to go.

    They are saying that if you can pass the physical fitness test you will likely be cleared during the medical evaluation.

    That's funny because I play hockey and I haven't been able to due to the hip and the doctor said I would be able to after the surgery. However this guy you speak of was already a cop prior the surgery correct ? If he wasn't just a recruit applying would he still be give the same chance if he didn't had this procedure ? Thanks again for everyone feed back

When you meet with these doctors for the physical exam what exactly does it entail what do you do/ look for

    One of my guys had a total replacement at 36. He's fine and still plays ice hockey several days a week.

  • Will a total hip replacement disqualify your from being a cop

    Hello all as some May know I want to start a career in law enforcement I'm 26 and plan to start the process soon. The reason I'm waiting a few months is I was born with a bad hip and at the end of September I need a total hip replacement now my doctor is assuring me that once I get the surgery I'll be as good as new. However I'm scared that this will disqualify me from becoming a cop even if I can pass all the pt test. I'm more scared about the medical exam. Does anyone know if this will keep me from getting a job?

    Thanks
    Brian
