Is there a way of treating it without having to replace the entire fender, and if there isn't, how do I replace the damaged part?

move out of the rust belt. Buy a non-rusted beauty. Rust belt cars will only last about eight years, so any fixes will disappoint (bondo, etc.) come the following season~ get out of there. California is beautiful full of beautiful people sunny everyday and pleasant non-salt cars are glorious, it's here babe~

To permanent remove rust, sand or grind it away. If there is metal left, prime and paint. If there are holes, weld the holes shut or weld in new metal.

Is there a vehicle body-work expert in your area ? He can deal with that easily. That's minor work for him.
