  • Patient with current diagnosis of PD with motor complications (as confirmed by neurologist) as per the standard criteria and guidelines.

  • Responsiveness to Levodopa or dopa agonist. This is defined as improvement between Off and On UPDRS by at least 33% of the Motor UPDRS.

  • PD of Stage 2.5, 3 & 4 of HOEHN & YAHR staging.

  • Stable Parkinsonian medications for the 60 days prior to the surgical therapy.

  • MRI not showing gross atrophy or any other pathology of brain.

  • Patients with score less than 19 for the Montgomery-Asberg Rating Scale (MADRS) for Depression.

  • NO Significant cognitive impairment.MMSE > 21.

  • History of psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia or psychotic disorders.

  • History of other malignancy, with the exception of treated cutaneous squamous cell or basal cell carcinoma, within 5 years.

  • Contraindication for MRI

  • Females who are pregnant or nursing or females of childbearing potential who are unwilling to maintain contraceptive therapy for the duration of the study

  • Life expectancy < 6 months due to concomitant illnesses.

  • Exposure to any investigational drug or procedure within 1 month prior to study entry or enrolled in a concurrent study that may confound results of this study.

  • Active infectious disease. Patients known to have tested positive for HIV, HTLV, HBV, HCV, CMV (IgM > IgG) and/or syphilis will be evaluated by an expert as to patient eligibility based on the patient's infectious status

  • Any illness which, in the Investigator's judgement, will interfere with the patient's ability to comply with the protocol, compromise patient safety, or interfere with the interpretation of the study results

  • Systolic blood pressure (supine) ≤90 mmHg;

  • Resting heart rate > 100 bpm;

  • Active clinical infection being treated by antibiotics within one week of enrollment.

  • Known drug or alcohol dependence or any other factors which will interfere with the study conduct or interpretation of the results or who in the opinion of the investigator are not suitable to participate.

  • History of cancer (other than non-melanoma skin cancer or in-situ cervical cancer) in the last two years.
