    You need to replace the entire package body.

    True, unless the procedure is not private to the package and you also changed its specification. In other words, if the procedure can be called from outside the package and you changed, for example, one of its parameter types or names, then you will also have to re-run the package header. Then, this will probably invalidate any other packages that call this package (at least the ones that call this procedure) and you will have to re-compile those.
