You should include a picture so that we can see the extent of the damage.

At any rate, you will need to run some micro-jumpers to “rebuild” the pads. Sometimes, you can make a very short jumper if the connection point is immediately adjacent to the pad. Other times, you may have to run it much further, perhaps even on the backside of the board.

Search for (sorry, we can’t share them here) and download the schematic, if you don’t already have it, and figure out what connects where. If the works is beyond your experience level, consider having this repaired by an experienced micro-soldering tech.

You can only add an image to the original question (or an answer), not to a comment.

Both of the missing pads are connected to Ground. You could probably get away with not fixing them but if you want to be certain, run a micro-jumper from the adjacent ground plane. The missing pads are actually pins 4 and 19.
