Answer
Yes, depending, of course, on the actual failure.  If it is physically damaged it may not be repairable.

There are various other methods; dependent upon the type of failure.

Further, for severe memory corruptions the manufacturers often provide a recovery service wherein the user sends the memory card to the manufacturers designated facility for recovery.

Hope this helps.
