Closet flange problems

I am in the process of replacing the linoleum in my downstairs bathroom. It was ruined by a leak at the base of the toilet. I was hoping that it was only the waz ring that was leaking, but no such luck. Upon removing the toilet, I found that the PVC closet flange was warped where the bolts go through for the toilet. The floor is concrete slab, and the flange is flush with the surface. Is there any way to replace the flange without having to jackhammer out a bunch of concrete? Also, the flange is not only warped, but is also not level. Any advise is greatly appreciated.

With the use of this tool called a Rambit see link below

Since there is problems on my web hosting site, I can't show any pictures from there to help you out.

This tool should help remove the existing pipe that will be glued into any hub, after you remove the flange and the pipe, your ready to install a new flange and pipe.

How unlevel is the flange?
