The imbibing country clubbers were tooting their New Years Eve miniature

horns, prematurely. An elderly man at the adjoining table is obviously

choking on an under chewed piece of steak,

Jason hollers, “can you talk?” The gasping man shakes his head, “no!” The

Heimlich maneuver fails. Jason yanks the tablecloth and the dishes crash to

the floor.

He lifts the cyanotic, gasping man to the table with his head extended over

the edge. He remembers Dr Heifer’s words “The most important thing to

remember in performing a tracheotomy is to extend the neck and the trachea

will project forward.”

He grabs a steak knife, makes an incision into the wind pipe below the voice

box and inserts a horn as a make shift tracheotomy tube.

With each breath, the tooting horn improves the color of the man from blue

to pink and ushers in the New Year.

Max Heeb MD, FACS has practiced surgery in Sikeston, Mo. for fifty

years. The biography "Max Th e Knife” was published in 2005.

As a former governor of the American College of Surgeons and

member of the credentials committee, he is aware of the importance of

certification by the American Board of Surgery and fellowship in the

American College of Surgeons. It is impossible for an imposter to qualify

for certification by the American Board of Surgery or fellowship in the

American College of Surgeons.

As a Christian, Dr. Heeb is aware of the forgiveness of sin, as

demonstrated in the third section of the book Redemption.

His wide experience in general surgery serves as a background for an

interesting, action packed novel.

Dr Heeb lives with his wife Marianna in Sikeston,Mo. and Cape

Coral, FL. They have three children: Christie, Mark and Scott and three

grandchildren: Elizabeth, Nicholas and Dominic.
