Can a woman who's had a tubal ligation and uterus removed but still has ovaries have a biological child via surrogate?

I'm a 44-year-old woman and I have had a tubal and my uterus removed, but I have both ovaries. Can I have a gestational carrier or surrogate carry and deliver my child? (My husband can produce children.)

It is possible. However, due to your age, you may need donor eggs as well.
