In brief: Yes

Prior vasectomy is a common reason for such surgery with excellent success rates in many patients.
Other causes of blocked vas are rare. Epididymal blockage on the other hand is more common from std's and other infections. Surgery to correct this is possible but much lower success rates can be expected. Subspecialty urology would be the best answer for this type problem.
