Display Cable Connector Broke on Logic Board? Entire New Board?

I repair Macs and was replacing a hard drive on a 2009 iMac 21.5. I haven't really had this problem before but when disconnecting the display cable from the it's socket on the logic board it broke just slightly. I figured it would be fine but now the display is out. I have pics I will link to below, but wondering if I have to replace the entire board or what would be the best solution? It looks very hard to solder. Any guides or videos are greatly appreciated!

@moltenm it is difficult to solder if you do not have the right tools or the proper training. Personally I'll send it of to some board level repair person. This will depend on where you reside but most continents have some really good people that could help you with that. It will be cheaper than a new logic board
