In brief: See below

The accepted indications for surgical treatment are syncope (fainting) which may indicate critical narrowing.
Chest pain which may be due to poor flow to the coronary arteries which start just beyond the aortic valve and shortness of breath which may be due to congestive heart failure are the two others.
