In brief: Surgery

It is still surgery, bit it is much easier to recooperate because it is less stressful on your body.

laparoscopy is less invasive surgery using small incisions and a scope to work inside the body while watching on a monitor

In brief: Minimally invasive

Most well trained laparoscopic surgeons today can do most of surgeries which required a large abdominal incision , through small 5mm incisions.
For the doctor means better view of the intra-abdominal organs. To you it means avoiding large abdominal scars, less post operative pain, going home same day of surgery, much faster return to your normal activities, decrease adhesions, and so on.
