Ford Taurus 98 coolant leak question

I have had my radiator pressure tested, and it seems that my radiator needs replaced. According to my local mechanic, on my taurus, the whole front end of the car needs to come off in order to replace the
radiator. Is this true?
Thanks in advance for any advice you might have.
