In brief: Many reasons

Laparascopic spleen surgery results, if successful, with less pain, smaller incision, less hospital time and faster return to work.

In brief: Smaller Scar

Minimally invasive surgery will leave you with a much smaller scar, less pain, a faster recovery, and, may reduce the complications associated with prolonged convalescance in the hospital.
Be sure to seek out a surgeon with advanced laparoscopic training, experienced in this procedure.
