no just take out the bearings clean and regrease, probably aswell buying new bearings(will cost you buttons) and proper(someone can correct me if i'm wrong) lithium grease i think... also check that there is no pitting in the cones(basically the bearing are off align and cause damage inside the cone, your wheel will still work it'll just be rough, depending on how bad it is and get rougher), pitting inside the actual hub tends to mean new hub if it's really bad....i'd guess the cones could be replaced if it was just them...
it's not a hard thing to do, i done it after watching my brother do it once, but i did have the advantage of watching him first...
you'll need the right spanners as well, can't mind the size, but they tend to need to be thin..
google your hub and proper instructions for it to find out more.
edit: a magnetic screwdriver is good for getting bearings out, that can be awkward.
