is it possible that aorta valve calcification be treated with medication rathan surgery?

Calcification: Aortic valve calcification does not require any treatment at all. Aortic valve stenosis (blockage) only requires treatment when it becomes critical and causes symptoms. There's no medication that will stop calcification. Only surgery when necessary.
