Often times you can do a bit of localized surgery to the shape rather than full rebuild.

For example, you can select faces, delete them, sweep in a replacement face, trim if necessary to the other existing edges, then use Join to glue it in and make a solid again.

There is a tutorial here: http://moi3d.com/forum/index.php?webtag=MOI&msg=446.17
which goes into some details on how to do some "low level" surface tweaking type stuff, like in that case it is a boolean that was done in the wrong place, and the tutorial is about how to salvage the shape by repairing localized areas of it.

Yeah the things you want to repair are all planar then that is the easiest way.
