Activa - Is it for me?

Hi

I have been diagnosed with advanced levodopa-responsive Parkinson's disease and was reading about Activa - the surgical treatment to help with my movement disorder.  I am 87 years old and wondered if I'm too old to have this treatment.  Is there anyone out there who can help?

Thanks!
Jack
