Due to the recent developments in medicine, Parkinson's disease became a relatively well-treatable condition. Recently the working abilities and the health-related quality of life of our patients dramatically improved by the application of optimal pharmacological and functional neurosurgical treatment options. Despite of these good progresses, the curative treatment option is still warranted. The aim of this review article is to present those pharmacological, neurosurgical and other treatments, which can improve the condition and quality of life of the patients. We also discuss the major concerns important for general practitioners including the assessment of driving abilities.
