Is it possible to treat fourth nerve palsy through surgery ?

Hello, I have been diagnosed as having a fourth nerve palsy in my right eye. I have been seen by both my Optometrist & a Specialist. I asked the Specialist whether the condition is correctible through any form of surgery to which he responded no . However, when searching through the Internet I have found that it potentially is possible to correct. I would be grateful for your opinion . Kind regards, Stewart

welcome to healthcaremagic portal
It is important to find out the reason for this problem.Blood tests and mri will probably give a clue.Once a cause is found then it is possible to treat it.
