It is illegal to perform an adenectomy or ductectomy in some countries; however, it is possible to do what you are asking.

ductectomy is the complete removal of the ducts leaving the venom glands. This type of surgery is frequently done on specimens with large venom glands in order to maintain the head shape. ex: Gaboon Viper

adenectomy would be the complete removal of glands and ducts.

On this website, you can find vendors that sell "Venomoids" which might be what you are looking for. However, please be aware that a VENOMOID can still bite and there is a great possibility of getting an infection.

Best Regards,
