By studying the central force problem in the framework of de-Broglie-Bohm theory, we observe that the perihelion precession of planets may be understood as the effect of the quantum potential. In fact, we show that there is a specific solution to de-Broglie-Bohm equations, in which the radial dependence and the sign of the quantum potential is exactly what is needed for the perihelion precession. The free parameters can be chosen such that the correct value of precession is obtained.
