No.  Severe symptomatic aortic stenosis, not sclerosis (thickening), is an indication for aortic valve surgery.

The doctor's answer will be definitive but my guess is that he'll say no.  I have a mild thickening of the mitral valve leaflets and my cardiologist has never said it's a problem at all.  Anything mild is probably nothing to worry about.  But as I said, the doctor's answer will be definitive.

Best of luck.
