Untwisting a workbench top

A friend gave me an old woodworker's workbench (looks a lot like this), and I'd like to put it to use. It has been stored improperly, and has a pretty severe twist in the third near the side vise. The whole top is something on the order of 10 cm (4") thick, and glued up from birch boards. Ideally I'd like to untwist it and flatten it and use it for woodworking. I'm unsure if it's feasible, though. I'm willing to spend a little money, as a new one of the same size is really expensive (USD 1000+).
