Hi there!

It would be difficult to comment on the situation without a detailed clinical evaluation. Old age per say is not a contraindication to any surgery in the absence of other comorbidities. It would be best to have him evaluated by his treating neurosurgeon and an anesthetist regarding the safety/ risks associated with a surgery.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
