Three choices, repack the grease in the joint and enclose it in a new boot, replace the entire axle with a brand new one, or replace the entire axle with a reman one.

If it just started and only some of the grease has leaked out you should be okay just re-greasing the joint and putting on a new boot. Personally, if you go this route which also requires pulling the axle off you might consider refreshing all four joints (inner/outer pair on both axles) with new grease and new boots.
