How to fix a bent handle bar?

I just noticed this recently and I'm guessing it was the result of one of the times I dropped my bike on its left side(obviously). I think it was one night just after parking it in my garage I was tired it just fell out of my control. I think I leaned too far to the right side or something.

Anyway, have any of you ever had to bend a bar back? If I removed everything from it could I hammer it or would it have to be completely removed? Any tips/tricks for this fix?
