Following his return to Turkey in 2005, he began working as a urologist at the Ankara Ataturk Teaching and Research Hospital shortly thereafter.

In 2011, the Ministry of Health in Turkey officially recognized pediatric urology as a specialization for the first time. Following an evaluation of Dr. Aras's academic career, he was granted grandfather status as a pediatric urologist. In 2013, he oversaw the launch of a Pediatric Urology Program at Ankara Ataturk Hospital, which was a first for Turkish government institutions. In 2017, he graduated from the "Institution of Medical Sciences" with the degree of "Professor of Urology," after which he began working at the Ankara Teaching and Research Hospital, which is connected to the aforementioned university. Until August of 2020, he was employed at this institution in the capacity of Director of the Urology Clinic.
