Hippys, help me get a job (please)
« on: April 03, 2014, 10:02:44 PM »
Hello all,

As some of you know, I am in the process of becoming a police officer. The reality is the only hurdle in my way of realizing my dream is convincing the doctors that do the medical examine that my hip is good to go.  My hip is in fact 100%, good to go and fully released by my surgeon (Dr. Joseph Jankiewicz).  This may not be enough.

I want to create a portfolio. Studies, athletes, people in law enforcement, and more.

I am turning to you guys.  There are a ton of you out there with the knowledge and wherewithal to help me see this through and get the job I believe I am destined to work.  Will you help?

Anybody with the skills and know-how to embark on this journey with me, please please please get a hold of me here.

Thank you so much,

Kevin Hitt

Hi KevinLHitt,

See the attached which has some great press from results Dr. Su has had with an NHL player, MLB pitcher and a WWE wrestler.

I would have thought the best way is to seek opinions from the top surgeons and ask if they will write you a letter in support of you.

I think Danny has suggested a very good first step. Is there a way to find out what the standards or metrics that they are asking you to meet?

One source of information for you might also be the Australian registry results that Pat has posted:

https://aoanjrr.dmac.adelaide.edu.au/en/annual-reports-2013

There are several reports on the main page, as an example, Dr. McMinn's 15 year old BHR reports:

Good luck...

Update:

I have passed the physical abilities test (part 1) for LAPD.  I had zero pain and kicked some serious butt in the side-to-side shuttle (finished 1st in my group)

This surgery has been a life changing event....

Kevin,

I would hate to say this, but I will.  In today's climate all you'd need to do if the doctors doing the exams turn you down is threaten a law suit for discrimination.  If you've been released from your surgeon to go back to full activity with NO restrictions, there's no way the doctors doing the exams could turn you away without discriminating against you; they are making a preconceived and discriminatory notion that you could not perform up to expected standards with out any proof or evidence.  I'd call that discrimination.
