Personally, I would at least take the time to price it.
I know someone who contacted a high school shop teacher and had a student do the work for them. It was stunning, the student got a good grade and some extra money, and the floor looked good as new. It saved them a fortune and kept the character of the house.
Compare the prices and time - an entire new floor or some repair work. I'd be willing to guess you'd save money on the job by repairing it.
Just curious, why aren't you haveing this work done by your insurance company? The whole point of insurance is to return the damaged items to their original state. My next door neighbour had a catastrophic leak that damaged the entire first floor of his house. He has the same quarter sawn oak floors that I have. They replaced it with quarter sawn oak at an expense that was dizzying, but that is why he has homeowners insurance!
