Necrotizing Fasciitis? ?

My dad was feeling ill and his symptoms got worse today so my mom brought him to the hospital. The doctor said he has necrotizing fasciitis. How likely is it he'll have to get an amputation? Will they have to put him in a medially induced coma? What are his chances of surviving? He does not have any conditions that could make it worse but I'm still worried. I'v been reading and it seems like amputations are almost always needed...

    They wont put him into a coma but they will probably operate to removes the surrounding tissue and give antibiotics and his chances are a few weeks in hospital before going home and rest for several weeks.
