Not really....   There is nothing really that can be done to restore the hearing in the dead ear.   A cochlear implant would theoritically work, but they would not do it because you have one good ear.

There is a device called the "Transear" google it

There is also a device called a BAHA (bone anchored hearing aid) and as the name applies it is anchored in the skull.

I would suggest you investigate the Transear
