A surgical cable crimp is disclosed for securing a surgical cable in a loop. The crimp has a crimp body with a head and a neck. The crimp body has a first longitudinal bore formed therein. The head has a second bore extending through the head and offset from the first longitudinal bore. The second bore is sized to allow a surgical cable with a ball end termination to pass therethrough until the ball end termination reaches the second bore. The surgical cable may then be looped about a selected portion of the patient's body and then inserted into the first bore, and then the neck is crimped to secure the surgical cable in the first bore and thereby form a secured loop.
