How can I get into recovery mode on a device that doesn't boot AND has broken volume buttons?

I have a Galaxy Nexus that isn't booting (boot loop) and I can't manually start recovery mode, because my volume buttons are broken.

Is there anything I can do?

You need to get ADB working. You should be able to restore the device that way without having to touch the buttons.

Visit this link for tutorial recovery using ADB.

Unfortunately, adb recognizes my device as "unauthenticated" and I can't send any commands to it.

Hello bro
If you have rooted device.. You can find this app "Android Tuner"
Install this and grant root permissions... And in this tool go to menu and select reboot with full choices
And select recovery

Oh sorry bro... I didn't read your post carefully...
Do you have both volume keys broken?

Yep. The only way is to get it repair. Sigh.
