In brief: Not sure what u ask

I am going to assume you meant minimally invasive surgery.
The answer to that is yes. There are a couple of approaches. The first is to only partially open the breast bone which allows for faster recovery. The other is to go between the ribs in upper right chest. In this case the breast bone is not broken at all. Both methods have pluses and minuses. But are good options.

In brief: Yes

This will require valve replacement if the stenosis is severe.
In other cases (moderate stenosis or less) the treatment is blood pressure control and diuretic use until the valve becomes severely stenotic requiring replacement. Typically bicuspid aortic valves need replacement in the 5th or 6th decade of life or later.

Aortic valve replacement has been the standard surgical procedure for the treatment of aortic regurgitation since reliable prosthetic valves became available. most centers, aortic valve repair has been reserved for patients with valve leakage caused by aortic disease (dissection or dilatation) or associated ventricular septal defect.
