Hip Replacement - Are ligaments repaired?

My THR was performed using the direct anterior method. No ligaments were cut. Muscles are just retracted out of the way. Look for that specific method on YouTube.

I've been leaning toward the direct anterior method. In one of the direct anterior operations which I viewed, the surgeon removed a piece of the iliofemoral ligament. I can't post the link, but the YouTube title of the video is "Total Hip Replacement Using The Anterior Approach", by Munjed Al Muderis. Watch from 3:09 – 3:57. Mind you, this video is from 2013, so maybe the methods have been refined since then.
