Is there any way to address the one "lazy" vocal chord?

Have been singing in various choirs for more than 30 years (tenor). Now can't hit/hold "high" notes; been diagnosed with a "Lazy vocal chord". Have quit choir singing, and don't plan on going back, but I do, sometimes have trouble swallowing; often choke (never life threatening), but is a minor bother, and always seem present-no pain, but the symptoms are very inconvenience. Anything I can do, short of surgery, to alleviate symptoms?
