6x6 Roof overhang support posts

One of the two support posts for the roof overhang above the front patio is rotting at the base due to water penetration over time. The post is sunk into a 6 inch concrete base, do I have to replace the post , which is a major job that would entail breaking the tile and concrete patio at the point of entry, putting a temprrary support to hold up the roof extension and tying a new post into the roof section or is there another way to fix it ?
