Rejected cells / infected arm, care procedures?

Due to a queasy stomach when it comes to researching gorey topics, I really haven't researched every possible resource. I'm curious about what would be standard procedures for dealing with a severely infected arm or situations of rejection of cells / gangrene. Treatment options / goals would also help. Magic and technobabble are options, but the narrator in question is a doctor, so I need some basis in real medicine instead of "beeping machine A."
