Brief Summary:
Deep brain stimulation of the sub thalamic nucleus (STN-DBS) is an efficient treatment to improve motor and non motor signs of Parkinson's disease (PD). In people aged more 70 years, an increased rate of side effects such as post-operative cognitive decline and/or postural instability with falls has been suspected with less improvement in the quality of life. Here, Investigators aim further explore the effects of STN-DBS in 50 patients with PD people aged more 69 years in a randomized parallel controlled study.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Parkinson Disease Device: Stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus

Detailed Description:
The effects of combined bilateral deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus and medical treatment on the quality of life will be evaluated in 25 PD patients aged more 69 years in comparison to 25 PD patients aged more 69 years that only received medical drug treatment.
