The early superblocks that layout the filesystem geometry are probably gone. So you'll need a tool that's smart enough to search past those to later superblock backups that might still have the old HFS geometry. Then whatever data is left can be recovered.

If the inode table was completely destroyed you're not going to have much luck. If you only lost some of the root inodes (that define the root directory etc), you may end up with a bunch of files in "lost+found" that need to be recovered.

I'd consider a call with the Diskwarrior guys just to discuss whether diskwarrior can do what I described
