In brief: Maybe

Alignment surgery by a well trained eye surgeon can often fix this issue.
However, if the deviating eye does not have useful vision, the tracking response of the brain needed to maintain alignment may not be able to keep it in place. This is an issue best covered by the eye surgeon who can give you the likelihood of a permanent fix in a specific case.
